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 pre-registration required.
Each workshop is 50 minutes long and is offered via Zoom. Workshops can also be found in the BU Events calendar.
