Writing Skills Workshops

As part of the CLRC workshop series, we have several Writing Skills Workshops scheduled for the current semester. The skills and strategies learned in the workshops can be applied to writing in classes across the curriculum. Instructors may contact the Writing Center staff to discuss the possibilities of collaborating on workshops for specific writing skills that pertain to their discipline.

No pre-registration necessary. Arrive in time to secure a seat; limited to 36 participants each session.
