Workshops & Events

The NSU Write from the Start Writing and Communication Center provides NSU students with a variety of opportunities to learn about specialized writing topics and improve their writing and communication skills.

Perfect your writing! Join other graduate and professional students this fall on Wednesdays from 12-1 pm in-person in the WCC (Rm. 430 in the Alvin Sherman Library) or online via GoToTraining.

We will get back to you to develop a plan for the workshop you requested.

The WCC hosts or participates in a number of events throughout the year that you may be interested in, such as: 

  • Writing Center Orientations - Bring your class to the WCC to introduce them to our space and services.
  • Kind-of-Long-Night Against Procrastination - Come join us right before finals for focused time finishing up your writing. Food provided.
  • Dissertation Boot Camps, and Discipline- and Profession-Specific Writing Retreats
  • Weekly Write-Ins - Weekly writing group where faculty, graduate, and professional students can come together this fall for dedicated time to focus on writing your dissertation, research, grants, or other projects. This writing group will meet on Mondays from 6-8 pm in the WCC (Alvin Sherman LIbrary, 430), and online via GoToMeeting. NOTE: Weekly Write-INs will resume on Monday, January 14.
  • Wikipedia Edit-a-thon - Once a semester, the WCC hosts an event to educate students about editing WIkipedia, to improve articles and to address its biases in what gets recorded and by whom. Each time we hold this event, the WCC will partner with a NSU department to improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to that discipline.
  • National Day on Writing - Visit the WCC on this day to add your voice to a national conversation about why we write.
