Writing Center Workshops

Writing Center Workshops

Penn State Great Valley's Writing Center offers four workshops available to currently enrolled students.

  • Writing in Graduate School: Back to Basics
    From developing essays, to using source material, to understanding the sometimes mysterious conventions of academic discourse, this workshop offers participants tools to become competent graduate-level writers and scholars.
    Register for Wednesday, February 1
  • APA: A Primer
    Many courses at Penn State Great Valley require use of American Psychological Association (APA) editorial style. This short workshop introduces APA style guidelines and formatting rules.
    Register for Thursday, February 2
  • Clear, Coherent, Concise: Strategies for Writing with Style
    A readable writing style depends less on talent and more on careful crafting of sentences. This workshop presents four sentence-writing techniques to transform weak, wordy writing that stumbles into precise, powerful prose that flows.
    Register for Wednesday, February 8
  • Presentation Design and Delivery 
    This workshop will present simple strategies for developing and delivering oral presentations that inform, engage, and persuade. Register for Thursday, February 9

All events take place from 5:00 until 5:55 p.m. Registration is free and refreshments are provided. For more information, contact Writing Specialist Erica Vinskie at GVWritingCenter@psu.edu.
