Contests, Workshops and Events

The Writing Center often hosts events, workshops, and contests catered to our love of writing.

Everyone is invited to participate in the Writing Center events and contests! We typically host a few contests each semester and, no matter your major or class level, you are welcome to participate in them (and maybe even earn a prize in the process). Check out our current events below for more information.

The Writing Center is also available for workshopping, either in the Center itself or in your classroom. We often visit classrooms to present general information on the Writing Center, to provide specific data on citing sources or writing tips, or to facilitate in-class workshopping.

If you are a faculty member interested in workshopping or for more information or specific questions regarding current events, please contact the Writing Center at or Dr. Janelle Pulczinski at
