Writing Center Workshop Series:

Fall 2017

Let's Get Personal:

A Guide for Writing Your Personal Statement

Whether you are applying to graduate school or professional programs, your personal statement is essential to making sure you stand out among a sea of other applicants. However, the personal statement is also mysterious – what do I talk about, and how do I do it? This workshop will provide you with some of the tools you'll need to write effective personal statements for graduate school and professional program applications. We will first discuss the key elements of personal statements. Then, participants will “workshop” their own personal statements. Everyone is strongly encouraged to bring in their own personal statement, as there will be opportunities to receive feedback from other workshop participants and Writing Center staff.

Dissecting the Essay:

A Guide to Improving Organization

A core element of any successful writing is coherence -- the logical arrangement of material.  In this workshop, we will use a few simple principles to dissect and reassemble a sample essay so the content is well organized and the author's point is clear. Participants will learn strategies to improve the organization in their own academic writing, particularly with regard to research essays. This workshop is designed for undergraduate writers, but graduate students are welcome to register.
