Next workshop: 

Effective PowerPoints and Visual Rhetoric
Tuesday, 8/25, Noon-1:00
Room 107, Earl S. Richardson Library

Have you ever sat through a boring presentation with PowerPoint slides that made no sense? Have you ever seen a really ugly presentation or handout and wondered what its author was thinking? Are you worried about the visual design of your handouts or job documents?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you'll want to come to the Writing Center's next workshop.

During this workshop, we will review the basics of good visual design, focusing especially on the design of effective PowerPoint documents. We will also answer any questions you may have about visual rhetoric and document design.

Space is somewhat limited, so please RSVP by using the following link:
