ON YOUR OWN SCHEDULE - Writing Skills for Literature and History

A Self-Study Course on WizIQ Based on the Fall 2015 Live Workshop 

Writing Skills Workshop for Great Books Students - Meeting 1
Alternatively titled "Writing Skills for Literature and History," this four-meeting course takes students through a friendly introduction to writing about the Great Books (and good books). The accompanying downloadable materials will make clear what the assignments are for each meeting. This is a live capture of an actual meeting, so it has some slow starts and a few glitches, but if you are patient, I think you will enjoy it and find it helpful.

Schedule a consultation, tutoring session, or group class.

The ideal time to schedule a meeting is before or after a scheduled workshop/office-hours time, but many times are possible. Please order a consultation and we will go from there.

Please note: I recently discovered my name and some of my work associated with the academically dishonest website studybay. I signed up with them to see if I could find my info but was unable to, and they are unresponsive to my requests to be cleared out of their files. I have no connection to them and do not endorse them. (5/2017)
