In addition to consultations, the Writing Center offers several writing workshops throughout each semester. Some topics may vary from semester to semester, but we try to cover a variety of high order concern workshops (thesis development, logic, coherence, organization, research, etc.) as well as low order concern workshops (grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, etc.). Check this page often for updated information, dates, and locations.
