You will see the written word?others' and your own?in a discerning light. And you will take this newfound knowledge?critical ways of thinking, close reading, writing, and revising?with you on your future academic voyage and beyond. Know that how you feel and think about writing will never be the same at the end of this voyage of discovery. For now, trust the process.
