Writing under Pressure Workshop: Prep for success on the CWE and essay exams

This one-hour workshop is designed to help students understand the basics needed to do well on timed or high-stakes writing assignments. This workshop is especially helpful for CWE preparation or for those who take essay exams. This workshop can also help those who want to get an idea of the general principles that can help them with writing for their courses.

Individual appointment

You may sign up for a ½ hour consultation with a writing center instructor to go over your class paper or CWE essay. (Before you sign up for an individual appointment to review your CWE essay, we ask that you consider attending the Writing under Pressure Workshop first.)

COMP 090

This is a zero-credit course for students who need sustained assistance in writing. Students enrolled in COMP 090 will meet with a writing center instructor for ½ hour twice per week for five weeks.

College Writing Exam (CWE)

When you know you are ready, sign up to take the College Writing exam.
