The Writing Workshop

A student resource that offers assistance with writing and oral presentations on a peer-to-peer basis

What do we do? 

In the Workshop, the Writing Project offers one-on-one writing assistance to writers in any course and at any phase of the writing process. Students can reserve a conference or drop in during open hours. Walk-in clients will be welcomed as time permits on a first-come, first-served basis. Conferences are held in the Baldwin Center for Learning and Teaching on the first floor of Kanbar Hall, and (new this year!) in H-L Library in the Media Commons Telepresence Room on Sundays and Wednesdays, where we offer not only help with papers but also help with oral presentations.

Information About The Workshop: 

Sundays, 6:00-10:00 p.m.
Mondays-Thursdays, 6:00-10:00 p.m.
Fridays, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

  • If at all possible, bring your draft early enough that you still have time--at least a day-- to revise it after the conference.
  • Please arrive on time so that you don't lose your slot.  If you are more than 10 minutes late, a waiting writer may take your slot.

Tips on How to Have a Successful Conference:

  • Bring a copy of the assignment with you.
  • Bring a draft, outline or list of ideas.
  • Take charge! Come to the conference with an idea of what you want to work on. 

The Workshop is run by students for students... so take advantage of this unique opportunity to get some helpful feedback from your peers!
