The Writing Center has scheduled their workshops this fall to meet the needs of students who must send out resumes and graduate school applications soon. In addition, our Thesis Proposal workshop is scheduled before the honors proposal is due, allowing you to talk with us and with peers about questions and concerns.
At these interactive workshops, you get to talk with Writing Center staff and with peers about how to create the document that best suits your situation. Whether you come with a draft or with nothing but questions, our workshops are designed to accommodate you. Afterwards, feel free to make an individual appointment with one of the Writing Center staff, from whom you may receive more feedback on your work.
Please call 73141 to register for the workshop of your choosing. If you are interested in one of the workshops but are unable to attend, please make an individual appointment to discuss your writing project.
