Using Reverse Outlining to Revise your Manuscripts

When you've completed a draft, how can you be sure that it is structurally sound?  Reverse outlining is a scholarly writing technique that you can use to ensure your manuscript makes sense.  You can also use reverse outlining to check your work against the structure you planned when you started work.

Participate in this workshop and you will learn the following:

  • To apply reverse outlining techniques to drafts
  • To identify logical misfires in your writing
  • To strengthen your arguments in scholarly writing

Please come to this session with a draft or final version of a current or completed writing project on paper or on screen.  This can be a draft of the project you outlined at Using a Template to Organize Ideas, the companion workshop that you may have attended on October 14, 2020.  But it could be anything that you're working on, or even a piece that you've already published.  Any piece of writing can be productively subjected to reverse outlining.

This workshop will be led by Mariève Isabel, a lecturer and instructor at the McGill Writing Centre since 2014. She has played several roles with Graphos, including workshop facilitator, writing group convener, tutor, and writing retreat facilitator.

The workshop will be offered online via Zoom on November 18, 2020, from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.

If you have any questions, please contact us at graphos [at] mcgill.ca.
