Workshops and Class Presentations

Workshops:

In addition to providing consultations, writing groups, and writing retreats, the Writers Workshop also hosts workshops and presentations on a variety of writing-related topics throughout the fall and spring semesters.

Class Presentations:

The Writers Workshop also visits classes, RSOs, and campus units upon request to introduce our resources or to provide a tailored, interactive presentation facilitated by one of our consultants.

Our “Introduction to the Writers Workshop” presentation is approximately 10 minutes in length and offers an overview of the key services we provide for undergraduate and / or graduate writers. In addition, we’re happy to work with you to create a longer writing-related presentation to suit your needs.
