Claiming Your Voice as an Academic Writer
This workshop will focus on demystifying the concept of voice in writing and providing students with several writing techniques they can use to develop their own writerly voices. It will focus, in particular, on the challenges that Standardized Academic English can present for multilingual students looking to bring their own voices into their academic writing and will suggest opportunities for addressing those challenges.
The central aim of this workshop is to support students to better understand “voice” in writing and to empower them to make informed linguistic decisions as writers.
