Writing Center “Tours”

A “tour” is a class visit to the Writing Center that can help to better acquaint your students to our services and minimize any apprehensions they might have. Please contact Catherine Sajna at csajna@clarkson.edu to schedule class tours.


Workshops and Seminars

We are creating a menu of workshops and seminars to be available to the entire community at set times with registration. The Writing Center workshops and seminars are designed as short, intensive brush-ups for clarity and coherence in communication style relevant to all disciplines. Examples include: 1) It’s not all about You–the importance of audience; 2) Show you Care–developing voice and perspective; 3) “And” doesn’t Mean What you Think it Means; 4) Information Processing–how sentences carry the load 5) create with advanced notice specialized workshops or training sessions right in your classroom. We are also available to collaborate with faculty members on an array of writing topics. Please contact Catherine Sajna at csajna@clarkson.edu, or call the Writing Center at 315.268.4439.
