Introduction to College Writing Workshop

August 17-20, 2020
Online, 12 to 2 p.m. each day


Aspire. Prepare. Succeed. Level up your skills just in time for fall. For only $50, you can participate in the Introduction to College Writing Workshop and receive a Certificate of Completion and a digital badge.

The Introduction to College Writing Workshop gives you a head start on the semester. You will work directly with instructors in the Wright State writing program to learn about the course, review the syllabus and expectations, and complete small group workshops that are designed to help you prepare for success in writing for their college courses.

Research shows that students who attend the workshop not only earn better grades in ENG 1100 than students who don’t—they get better overall grades. Students have praised previous workshops:

  • “We got individual attention and I really learned something.”
  • “I really think this will help as I start school Monday.” 
  • “I would recommend this to any first-year student taking ENG 1100.”


You will be charged $50 by your Wright State student account for participating in this workshop.


To enroll in the workshop, please log in with your campus username and password then complete the form below. Seats are limited so sign up early to make sure you get a spot!

If you enroll but then decide NOT to attend, you need to notify Becca Webb in the Department of English at 937-775-2279 no later than August 13. Otherwise, you are responsible for paying the $50 fee.
