College writing, public speaking, and workplace presentations all require us to apply some level of argument and persuasion in order to be effective. With this technique, we not only have to know how to organize and analyze our own thoughts, but we must be able to consider the viewpoints of others in a critical yet fair manner.
Learn the fundamentals of argumentative & persuasive writing in this workshop with expert Jessica Wawra. You will take away key components that form this popular writing technique and be better prepared for college essays, public speaking, and presentations in the workplace!
*Jessica Wawra holds a M.A. in Aesthetics & Politics from California Institute of the Arts. In addition, she held a graduate research & teaching assistantship and completed her program as a Lillian Disney Scholar.
Throughout her career, Jessica has been drawn to the intersection of art and social justice. Her writing and research challenges social inequities and oppressive power structures, and investigates human interactions in the public sphere. Through critical explorations of art, community, and context, Jessica seeks ways to foster dynamic discourse and elevate underrepresented populations.
Outside scholarly endeavors, Jessica and her husband enjoy watching sci-fi / horror / fantasy shows and taking their dog, Selkie, on walks in the foothills.
