Writing Workshops

What is a writing workshop?

Well, it depends on the workshop! Some workshops might include writing and editing, while others might be a brief introduction to a writing-related topic. At UC Davis, we host a variety of different workshops throughout they academic year. A selection of past workshop titles include:

  • Writing a grant proposal
  • Writing a literature review
  • Overcoming writer's block
  • Collaborative writing
  • The dissertation: getting started, getting done
  • Managing a committee: Strategies for effective negotiation and communication with multiple committee members
  • Careers in science writing and communication

Workshops are led by University Writing Program faculty, Graduate Writing Fellows, or both.
