Most people use only a fraction of the many useful features in MS
Word. This workshop focuses on features that are easily overlooked or
hard to find, such as renumbering pages, hanging indents, modifying
internal margins, and inserting a table, chart,
or table of contents.

Our Writing Tips Tree offers the campus community a chance
to share your best “writing tip” with the IUP community and larger National Day
on Writing Community. Faculty, staff,
and students are all welcome to come, submit a tip, take a selfie with the
tree, and tag themselves on social media with #WhyIwrite and #IUPWriting. Submissions
will be entered into raffles for prizes at our celebration on October 21.
This workshop introduces
graduate writers of any level in how to avoid plagiarism in their writing, both

to understand and work with the iThenticate
program, which is used by the graduate school prior to submission of your
thesis or dissertation. Finally, this workshop will also introduce the Jones
White Writing Center’s graduate editing service.
