In addition to consultations, the Writing Center offers writing workshops throughout each semester. Our two main workshops are the following: the Baker’s Dirty Dozen Workshop Series is featured each fall, and the Writing for Success Workshop Series is featured each spring. Additionally, we provide workshops by professor request. The form used to request the workshop is linked at the bottom of this page and is linked on our Resources page under Faculty & Staff resources.
The Baker’s Dirty Dozen Workshops

The eight-part, 45-minute Dirty Dozen workshops are designed to help writers recognize and avoid common grammatical errors. To attend a workshop, simply show up at the appointed place and time of the session, as detailed below. There is no pre-registration or sign up required.

The Writing Center offers a weekly Writing Studio each Tuesday. The Writing Studio allows students to write in a collaborative environment—ask peers and consultants for input while the student writes. Students do not need to sign up for the Writing Studio beforehand; they just need to show up with their own computer and work to the Writing Center.

For additional assistance with Dirty Dozen errors, we encourage you to take advantage of our Quick and Dirty Dozen Videos, Dirty Dozen Workshop PowerPoint Slides, and/or Dirty Dozen Quiz Series. You can also schedule a Writing Center Consultation to work one-on-one with a consultant.
