April Morning Meeting: Writing Workshop for Law Librarians

April 2012 Program Flyer

Program Description:

If you missed it at AALL in Philadelphia last summer, you have another opportunity to attend this well-received writing workshop. Designed for writers of all levels, the workshop will help us learn how to think past mere sentence-level editing skills to more deeply fine-tune our writing. 

By exploring often-overlooked features of good academic writing, especially those that quietly serve as the springboard for an article’s main idea, we can begin to more easily come up with new and relevant topics about which to write, position a piece for publication, and communicate our ideas effectively to readers.

Workshop Leaders:

Amanda Irwin Wilkins, Director of the Princeton Writing Program, began her career in the editorial department at Scarecrow Press before earning her graduate degree in Comparative Literature. At the Writing Program she teaches new teachers of writing and offers a freshman writing seminar which draws on her research into how writers imagine war from the home front and navigate the aftermath of collective and individual trauma.

David Hollander is the Law & Legal Studies Librarian at the Princeton University Library and a Lecturer in the Princeton Writing Program where he teaches a writing seminar titled “The Fourteenth Amendment.” Prior to coming to Princeton University, David was the Reference/Instructional Services Librarian at the University of Miami School of Law. He is an active member of the American Association of Law Libraries.
