Writing Skills Workshops

Students are strongly encouraged to attend as many of the writing skills workshops as possible. Workshops and seminars are designed to assist students in a group setting. This way, students can benefit from hearing other students’ questions and collaborate in finding solutions. Typically, sessions are focused on a particular topic that comprises part of the pre-writing or writing process.  Students making individual appointments may be advised to attend seminars and workshops in addition to their one-on-one sessions.

All workshops are open to BU students and staff. No preregistration is required. Each workshop is 50 minutes long and is offered via Zoom. For dates, times, and links, please visit the BU Event Calendar or the Fall 2021 Writing Skills Workshop Schedule.
