There are many resources for University of Denver students, including student workshops and student writing groups.
Workshops for Students
Whatever your course level or subject matter, Writing Center consultants and Writing Program faculty will work with you to plan an in-class writing workshop for your class or student group. We will create workshops specifically for your course, your goals, and your students' writing needs. We ask for two weeks notice for any workshop. The following list includes some of our recent workshops for classes in a variety of departments and programs:
- Peer reviewing and revising one's writing (History)
- Evaluating sources (Lamott School of Music)
- Drafting effective project proposals (Physics & Astronomy)
- Writing literature reviews and incorporating original research (Anthropology)
- Crafting effective thesis statements (Sociology and Criminology)
- Writing for academic and public audiences (Korbel School for International Studies)
- Using APA and learning the conventions of business writing (Daniels College of Business)

Writing groups are small, informal groups of students who meet to read and discuss each other's work in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment. Joining a writing group supported by the Writing Center can help you:
- Improve your writing and gain confidence in your abilities.
- Set low-stress deadlines to help you stay on track through large writing projects, whether a final essay for a difficult course, a thesis, a capstone project, or a doctoral dissertation
- Create a support network of peers who can read your work and help you to improve your writing chops over time while helping others in return
- Improve your English-language skills
