Writing Project 3: Writing About Writing

Assignment (Overview):

Decide on what academic discipline or career field you wish to research; research writing in this area through primary and library research. Use this research to compose an essay offering an analysis of how writing is used in this field, and a reflection on how you may operate as a writer in this field.

As a multi-genre, multi-step project, there are 10 major pieces of the project you’ll complete, for a total of 300 points. In the PDF document below, you will find a brief overview of each piece, as well as a link to the full instructions for each part. Please be sure to fully read the instructions at each step; these are also posted with the assignment submission on Canvas. As our most complex project, it’s important to ensure you are completing each step fully.
