Whether you are applying for an internship or job or tackling your first college essay, knowing how to write persuasively can help you succeed.  This workshop, presented by C&M Lecturer David Banks, will cover the basics of persuasive and analytic essay construction, the "Toulmin Method" of integrating data and claims, and how to strike a balance across multiple forms of authorial authority.  Participants will learn new writing skills, and begin putting them into practice during the second hour of the workshop. And there will be free pizza! 

David A. Banks, PhD, is the editor of the internet and society publication Cyborgology and a published researcher in the areas of social media, design, and technology studies.

The Essay Writing workshop is open to Rensselaer faculty, staff and students. To sign up, please RSVP here
