Writing Skills Workshops

As part of the CLRC workshop series, the Writing Center offers a number of Writing Skills Workshops each semester. Writing Skills Workshops provide opportunities for students to learn and practice skills and strategies that will assist them through the many stages and challenges of completing writing assignments in courses across the curriculum. All WSWs are free and open to students from all classes, including English, History, Communications, and Biology. For any of the workshops, students may bring an assignment or use one of our examples. 

No pre-registration necessary. Arrive in time to secure a seat; limited to 39 participants each session.
