But I already know how to write. Why should I take this seminar?
College writing can be different from what you may be practicing in high school. Many Precollege alumni report that the Writing Workshop greatly improved their writing skills, helping them succeed even more in their high school courses and giving them the skills to stand out in their college admissions essays and writing samples.

What if English is not my native language?
There is a special section of the Writing Workshop for students for whom English is a second language (EXPOS-UA 30 Section 064). Students in this class will receive additional feedback from the instructor on English grammar and style.

When does the Writing Workshop run?
The Workshop meets twice a week for 90 minutes. There are multiple sections offered at a variety of different times to suit your schedule.

Okay, you’ve convinced me; how do I register?
