Fall Writing Seminars

VDS Writing Tutor Michael Sekuras Muñoz and Divinity Librarian Keegan Osinski have scheduled this semester’s Fall Writing Workshop webinars. The series is open to all VDS students and geared toward preparing you for research and writing for coursework. Michael and Keegan are especially hoping to serve first-year students who may not be as familiar with the writing and research resources here at VDS.


Exegesis Friday | October 9, 12pm

Michael and Keegan will walk you through how to exegete a biblical passage as well as talk about different methods for close reading of texts. Especially helpful as you write your Hebrew Bible paper!
