Prewriting is the process that you go through before beginning to type out your paper. Prewriting includes the following:

  • Critical reading
  • Choosing a topic
  • Notetaking
  • Organizing your information
  • Analyzing information before you begin to write your draft.

See the Writing Center's prewriting page for some tips on this process. The recorded webinar "Prewriting Techniques: Taking the First Steps" can also assist you in discovering ways to prewrite effectively.
