ENG 165 | Academic Writing, Food Writing, Grant Writing

2016 Spring

Susan Schweik & Samia Shabnam Rahimtoola

This course supports undergraduate students in developing general writing skills through intensive focus on the demands of three very particular forms: academic writing; popular food writing (blogs and essays); and, with especially heavy emphasis, grant writing. We alternate between working on key skills for sophisticated academic writing — taking breaks at moments to write creatively and playfully about food — and working on drafting an actual grant application in partnership with a local community organization.
