Workshops

The NSU Write from the Start Writing and Communication Center offers workshops for students and faculty designed to improve their writing and introduce them to innovative pedagogies and technologies. This winter, workshops are being held on Wednesdays starting in mid-January.

Descriptions of workshops and registration links are in the dropdowns below. Your department, employee, or student group can also request a custom workshop to meet your specific needs.

You might also be interested in our WCC Weekly Write-Ins, 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 (starting January 14th) from 6-8 pm in the WCC (Alvin Sherman LIbrary, 430), and online via GoToMeeting.

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.

If you want to attend in-person or virtually using GoToTraining, simply click the link next to the session description below and enter your information. (Once registered, you will receive reminders and an email with the link to login to the session.)

*BYOD! The WCC encourages all visitors to bring their laptops, tablets, or mobile devices with them to use during workshops.
