In-Center workshops are offered periodically throughout the academic semesters. You can register for one of the workshops listed below by completing the In-Center Workshops Registration form.
Please keep in mind that all in-center workshops take place in Tuttleman 201D. You are free to sign up for multiple workshops, but do not reserve a space until you actually intend to attend.

First Year Writing Portfolio workshop plus writing retreat: This workshop will offer our FYW portfolio presentation (described above) with the addition of dedicated time for participants to work on developing their cover letters, to revise essays to put in the portfolio, and to discuss their work-in-progress with writing center tutors.

If you want a quiet, supportive environment to spend an afternoon writing and revising, this workshop is for you!
