Entitled to a Title

By Patrick

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This month we’re breaking bad writing habits, and this week we’re specifically talking about how important titles are to a paper. They convey so much in so few words, so it’s very important to take advantage of its power to entice your reader to read what you’ve written!

Check out what Patrick has to say in the video below, and then see our handout on creating well crafted titles to help you break this bad writing habit!
