Preparing for Successful College Writing

Are you nervous about what it means to write effectively in college? We can help you get prepared for the kinds of writing you will be asked to do in your college classes.

In this four-day virtual workshop, learn an effective academic writing process — from brainstorming through revision — that is engaging and can be used across academic disciplines. Learn how to assess actual college assignments, to break down the process of writing and tackle integrating research and useful quotations into your essays, along with citation protocols. Leave with useful essay techniques and confidence in yourself as an academic writer.

Be prepared to share your work with the group, and give/receive useful feedback. This workshop will be on Zoom.
