Introduction to College Writing Workshop

August 19-22, 2019
8:30–11:30 a.m.
028 Millett Hall  

The Introduction to College Writing Workshop introduces you to the activities and expectations of ENG 1100, the first required Wright State Core writing course.

For students placing into ENG 1100 or 1140, give yourself a head start in your writing courses and Wright State career with the Introduction to College Writing Workshop.

This workshop will help you get ready for your other classes, too: 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 freshman taking ENG 1100.”

Format and Cost

Workshop classes will be held in computer classrooms in Millett Hall. You will use the same software used in ENG 1100, which meets in the same computer classrooms.

The workshop includes a preview of the textbook that you'll probably use in ENG 1100 and 2100 and will be useful in your Intensive Writing courses, too. If you attend all four workshop sessions and do the work, you’ll receive a “Commencement” reward: a flash drive and lanyard.

Your university account will be charged $50 by the Bursar’s Office following the workshop. If registering on or before August 9th, you may (for an additional charge) move into campus housing early to attend the workshop.
