Writing Goals Workshop
Make a plan to meet your writing goals!
In this workshop, we discuss how to schedule time and keep oneself accountable to academic research and writing goals and deadlines. Each participant makes a plan for completing their writing goals, breaking down long-term goals into manageable short-term goals. Writing Center Fellows follow up with students’ progress via scheduled check-in emails throughout the semester.
