Graduate Revision Workshop

The Graduate Revision Workshop is a working group that brings together English and Comparative Literature students from all subfields and all years to discuss the processes of writing and publication. The group balances an interest in publication as a pragmatic measure of professionalization with a serious investment in questions of style, tone, and method. All graduate students are welcome to participate and share their works-in-progress, but it is especially useful for students earlier in the program to grapple with these issues prior to beginning their dissertation.

The workshop meets regularly for intensive 1.5 hour long workshops of a single student's work, and for occasional faculty presentations about article development and publication. All meetings are held in the graduate lounge (FBH 330) unless otherwise specified.
