Workshops on Writing

The Writing Center is pleased to partner with the Academic Success Center to offer three writing-focused workshops this term.

Integrating Sources (Friday, February 2)

Integrating sources into your writing puts your ideas in conversation with previous writers and researchers. In this workshop, you'll learn differences between summary, paraphrase, and quotation. Together, we'll practice these three approaches and identify strategies for making effective decisions when integrating sources within your writing.

Personal Statements (Tuesday, February 6)

Personal statements are an important part of graduate school applications and can often be stressful to draft. Join us as we introduce personal statements, talk through strategies for structure and content, and review a sample statement together. You’ll learn about strategies for drafting your own statement and resources to support your writing process.

The Writing Process & Time Management (Wednesday, February 14)

Writing is a process that takes time and energy—things which can be challenging during a busy term. Join us to think through steps of the writing process and discuss approaches to project and time management. Together, we’ll explore strategies and resources to support you in accomplishing your writing goals.
