Undergraduate and Graduate Workshops

Our workshops aren’t just about writing. They’re about curiosity and imagination, about using sources and expressing ideas, about being creative and thinking critically.

Led by experienced Writing Center consultants, each workshop offers an opportunity to work interactively on a particular thinking, reading, or writing skill. You don’t need to do anything to prepare for the workshop or bring anything except yourself and your interest. Please be sure to arrive by the start time, as you may not be admitted once a workshop begins.

Undergraduate Workshop Schedule


Our workshops last approximately 50 minutes. No registration is required. Current workshop information is also posted on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/VCUWritingCenter.

By reimagining the personal statement as a marketing strategy, you will discover how to think about yourself and your experiences from a businesslike perspective.
