Power Academic Writing is an online synchronous workshop series that will take place during Spring 2020 to provide students, especially English as Second Language and English as Additional Language learners, with the opportunity to learn important topics in academic writing in a risk-free environment.

Students who participate in the Power Academic Writing program will be presented with content, apply it in practical writing assignments, and receive feedback from the instructor. The program is divided into five modules, and students can choose to take all of them or just the ones that are of more interest to them. Registration is required.
