"Without taking Writing Center workshops, I would not have had the confidence to pass the WST. The workshops give you the confidence and the extra push." 

--R.J. Torres, student in the McNair Scholars Program

Our writing workshops are one-hour group seminars that focus on specific writing topics. 

After reviewing our workshop topics, register for whichever workshop(s) you'd like to attend. You will find a registration link on the schedule page. Each workshop has 15 seats available. If a workshop fills, we will add up to five students on a waiting list. We cannot guarantee seating for those on the waiting list, but we will do our best to accommodate you.


Spring 2015 Workshop Schedule


When you register for a workshop, you agree to the following rules. 

  • Arrive on time. Late-comers, registered or not, will not be seated. Workshops start promptly at the scheduled time. If you are late, you will not be able to attend the workshop. No exceptions.
  • Come prepared to learn. As in our tutoring sessions, we strive to create a distraction-free environment. Cell phones are prohibited. Please do not bring any guests with you to the workshop (including children).
  • Return to the Writing Center immediately following the workshop and talk to the admin if you need proof that you attended the workshop. Our admin will give you a confirmation slip. These slips will only be given out on the day of the workshop, and only one confirmation slip will be given to each student. 

If you register for a workshop but later realize that you will not be able to attend, please contact us

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