WEST Workshop: Rhetorical Situations!


The rules for writing aren’t always the same. What works in a Freshman Composition paper doesn’t work in a lab report, and your best strategies for writing a Spanish essay won’t necessarily apply when writing a med school statement. All of this varies based on your audience and the rules of the genre, what we call the “rhetorical situation.” Want help understanding this issue? WEST, the Writing Excellence Studio at Tech, has got you covered! On Thursday, 11/2, we will be leading a dead hour workshop on understanding and working within rhetorical situations. We can talk about ways to assess different rhetorical situations, and how to figure out the “rules” for any given piece of writing. The workshop will be in Henderson Hall 304B, from 11:00-11:50. No registration is required, and all are welcome.  And if you can’t make the workshop, come for a one-on-one session with one of our consultants.
