Essential College Writing Skills

This Oregon Writing Project (OWP) style camp features reading widely in the essay genre, quick writing responses, learning to “read as a writer”, applying peer and instructor feedback to grow essay drafts––learning questions to ask peer readers is a revision skill that is fully portable when you leave home for college. We will learn to generate a strong variety of sentences, featuring reading essays like a writer, with several new essay starts and final essays started and grown with peer and instructor feedback.
