Drop-In Sessions

Starting Jan 20th we'll be offering Wednesday noon drop-in sessions every other week. These bi-weekly drop-ins are a chance to talk with the Writing Instructor about any writing related questions that you have. No appointment necessary, you can join at any time in the 50 minute session. This is an informal way to meet the instructor and talk about your writing projects, assignments, and any part of the writing process; for example, time management, editing, draft writing, how to overcome writer's block, and writing for an audience. On Wednesdays at 12pm, bi-weekly via the following Zoom link:
