Briefing March 27

Good morning, historians of East Asia!

Resource! Today I’d like to share with you a useful resource to help you with revising your writing. This works for all writing, not only for the reflections and assignments for this course. Head on over to this website and pick a challenge to revise your writing. Some of these are specific to the writing course from my colleague and friend @OnlineCrsLady, but they’re short and sweet but effective strategies. You can also team up with a friend and work through each other’s posts. Pick one challenge/suggestion, and focus on that for a single blog post. If you spot a pattern, you’re learning something about your writing!
