pen over paper

Our writing workshops are one-hour group seminars that focus on specific writing topics. We offer workshops on a variety of subjects, including common citation styles, grammar and punctuation, essay exams, vocabulary building, and more.

Workshops are offered during the spring and fall semesters. Our workshops are popular and fill up quickly -- if you'd like to attend a workshop, please register in advance through the "Workshop Registration" page.

Please note that the Writing Center will cancel any workshop that does not have a minimum of five people enrolled 24 hours before the presentation date.

If you are a San Jose State University faculty member, and you'd like to request a custom workshop for your class, please contact us with your specific request.
