Write-Ins and Workshops

Weekly Walk-In Writing Support

The Writing Resources Center's new Write-Ins are weekly hours designated for walk-in consultations--no appointment required.

Work Independently and Ask Questions

Every Thursday, from 5:00-7:00pm, drop by the WRC for short, one-on-one conversations with our peer consultants. Use the Write-Ins to ask a few quick questions about an assignment or to establish a writing routine and stay on track when you're working on a project. 

Five of our Write-Ins will begin with a 20-30 minute workshop:
