Summer Camp: Writing and Reason 

The relationship between thought and pros in competitive writing

A university preparation course for juniors and seniors: Students will learn the relationship between thought and prose and apply these skills to their own written work. Students will master the 25 sources of invalidity which compromise or render assertions moot. Students will improve their own prose for application across academic disciplines. Students will learn to become editors of their own and others work. Students will learn how to respond to the competitive demands of university and professional writing.
