The Pleasure of Producing Good Sentences
A Scholarly Writing Workshop with
Friday, September 11
2-3:30pm in Old Chem 011
Academic writers typically evaluate their work at the level of ideas or arguments. But there is no indication of your thoughts beyond the sentences you use to capture them. What happens when we shift our attention to the careful crafting of each individual sentence? Can there be rhythm and music in scholarly prose?
Aaron Sachs teaches history, writing, American Studies, and environmental studies at Cornell University.

Press, 2013). He also serves as the faculty advisor to a radical, underground graduate-student organization called Historians Are Writers (HAW!)
