Workshops on Request

Instructors: We offer Writing Skills Workshops, which are especially helpful for instructors of non-English courses who assign papers. For example, "WS-4: Where do I begin? Preparing a First Draft" can help history students get started in the writing process, and "WS-8: To Cite or Not to Cite? APA Documentation Made Easy" can help psychology students properly format their papers.

Request a workshop today!
