Our writing workshops are one-hour group seminars that focus on specific writing topics. You can find more information about the workshops within our online scheduling system, or you can visit our workshop topics page. If you are preparing for the WST, you might find "Essay Prompts and Time Management" particularly useful. Refer to the calendar below for information about dates, times, and locations.
Please note that all remaining in-person workshops for the spring 2020 semester have been canceled (due to the COVID-19 pandemic). However, we are working toward creating videos of our workshops and, eventually, we will be offering workshops via live stream. To maintain high-quality services, it will take some time to produce these virtual workshop offerings, but rest assured that we are working on it!
Workshop Policies and Procedures
You have the option to register in advance or show up on the workshop date by the
scheduled start time. We can accommodate up to 15 students in each workshop.
When you attend 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 unless they are explicitly being used as part of the workshop.
- Return to the Writing Center immediately following the workshop and talk to the front-desk assistant if you need proof that you attended the workshop. Our admin will provide a stamp for you. These stamps will only be given out immediately following the workshop.
The Writing Center reserves the right to cancel any workshop that does not have a minimum of five people enrolled 24 hours before the presentation date.
