Writing Workshops Available for All Students

Do you have a writing-intensive course this semester? Would you like to brush up on...

  • personal statements?
  • proofreading strategies?
  • MLA or APA documentation?

All this and more is covered in the Writing Center’s free Wednesday Workshops on Wednesday evenings in 218 Eicher Hall, located on Grant Street near the big smokestack.

Wednesday Workshops begin at 7:00 p.m. and last for about one hour. Attendance vouchers will be provided at the conclusion of every workshop. No appointments are needed—students can just walk in!

The workshop schedule is as follows:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 6: Proofreading
    Do you have trouble seeing mistakes in grammar and punctuation in your writing? Maybe you’re using the wrong strategy when you read. This workshop shows you how to find errors and correct them.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 13: APA Documentation
    APA is commonly used in the social sciences and education. This workshop shows you how to cite sources with parenthetical references in your paper and how to create a list of references at the end.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 20: MLA Documentation
    MLA is commonly used in the humanities and is often required in college writing courses. This workshop shows you how to cite sources within the body of a paper and how to create a Works Cited page at the end.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 27: Hearing Voices
    Research writing often works like a conversation between speakers with different voices. You will learn to identify the “voices” in a text and compose a piece of writing that incorporates your own voice with the various voices of your sources.
  • Wednesday, March 6: Proofreading
    Do you have trouble seeing mistakes in grammar and punctuation in your writing? Maybe you’re using the wrong strategy when you read. This workshop shows you how to find errors and correct them.
  • Wednesday, March 13: Writing Personal Statements
    This workshop will help you create a creative and original personal statement for graduate school applications, employment opportunities, and more.
  • Wednesday, March 27: Revising Your Research Paper to Flow Smoothly
    Once you have gathered the sources for a research paper, you still have to fit them in with your own ideas and use transitions to make everything flow together. This workshop helps you do that.
