All writing begins with ideas. But how do you translate your nebulous thoughts into concise, coherent prose? The Hamilton College Style Sheet is designed to aid us, the students, in our constant quest for knowledge and course credit. Whether your question is about subject-verb agreement, footnoting, or what font size, the Style Sheet will tell you what Hamilton professors expect from their students, and what we as writers should expect from ourselves.
A brief but thorough guide to getting started, getting through it, and getting finished.
For whom are you writing? Why does it matter? Why are we here? The answers to these and other existential enigmae.
