Editing for Style: How to Improve Your Writing

Conference Room 4, UCLA Student Activities Center (basement level) Los Angeles , CA

I've been told that my writing is "dense" and "passive" and that my sentences don't "flow." How can I fix these problems?  This hands-on workshop will cover strategies for improving writing at the sentence level. We will look at common problems like the overuse of weak verbs, passive voice, and nominalizations as well as offer specific tips to strengthen clarity and cohesion. Please bring a hard copy of your own work, at least 5-10 double-spaced pages (more is fine).
