Course Description
Crediting sources correctly is an integral part of academic writing, as is the ability to apply a consistent style. In this class, participants will learn how to cite correctly and what it means to adhere to a specific style guide. Participants will learn how to employ different citation methods (endnotes and in-text) and to format a reference list. The focus will be on the APA and Chicago styles, introducing you to the basics and how to achieve conformity and consistency. We will also cover issues of ‘house’ style, such as differences between UK and US English, as well as things you may not know, such as the difference between -, –, and —!

The second day offers a chance for participants to put the theory into practice. Perhaps you have an article you’d like to submit to an English-language journal? Or maybe you’ve had an article returned with the direction to apply the journal’s style? Participants are encouraged to bring their own writing to class for collaborative workshopping to prepare for submission.
