Groups of writers at Ball State often want to learn more about the Writing Center or want a lesson on a specific writing topic. We are happy to work with these writers through our presentations and workshops.

Writing Center Introduction
We are able to come to classes, groups, resident halls, department meetings, or the like to introduce your group to the Writing Center. Alternatively, we can often arrange for your group to come to our main center to see the space in person. The introductory presentation lasts about 10-15 minutes with audience questions.

Custom Workshop
We are also able to craft workshops for classes, groups, or departments. Past presentations have ranged in topic from crafting literature reviews to revision strategies to how to give useful peer feedback. Workshops can vary in time, usually ranging from 20-50 minutes. Please note: faculty and instructors requesting workshops must be present during the presentation.

We can accommodate most requests with a two-week advanced notice. Most introductions are delivered by an undergraduate or graduate student tutor. Most workshops are developed by one the graduate student assistant directors. The faculty director or associate director develop faculty workshops.
