Clear and elegant writing is essential for success in college and beyond. The Writing Skills Workshop will provide students with the tools they need to think critically about their writing process by breaking it down into manageable components. We will demystify writing by adopting concrete strategies for planning an essay, developing a strong argument, and revising drafts. Students will leave the workshop understanding how to turn the anxiety of the blank page into an opportunity for professional achievement and personal growth.
