WCSS 8030 - Doctoral Writing Workshop: Revising and Editing the Literature Review


(0 cr.) This small-group workshop is for doctoral students who have a working draft of their dissertation, project, or doctoral study proposal but find themselves needing writing guidance and support with the proposal’s Literature Review.

With the help of the writing faculty member, workshop participants will spend 6 weeks advancing the draft of the Literature Review through tailored one-on-one writing instruction and supportive group work with the students’ peers. Students will get to know the required components of the Literature Review and have the opportunity to learn how to address common writing issues, such as effective use of summary and synthesis, applying correct use of APA and source citations, and articulating search strategies. Importantly, the instruction and feedback that students receive will be anchored in their own work. The goal of this workshop is to help students make progress toward the completion of the Literature Review. As needed, the writing faculty member will help create a tailored plan based on students’ specific needs to ensure that they can continue to advance their draft.
