Writing Studio

You. Writing. Ideas.


Every semester, the Writing Studio offers workshops and seminars to assist students in various aspects of writing. Professors will often schedule these workshops for their classes, but we also provide workshops specifically for the RooWriter. If you cannot make it to one of the scheduled workshops, but you would still like to work with a writing consultant to learn more about these assessments, feel free to schedule an appointment.

RooWriter Workshops
