The Writing Support Center hosts workshops throughout the semester on a variety of topics. For Michaelmas 2018, workshops will be held Mondays afternoons from 4:30-5 pm in the library study rooms. The calendar for workshops for Michaelmas 2018 is:

Appointments / Office Hours
One-on-one sessions are available by appointment. Email Caitlin Stamm (stamm@gts.edu) to set up an appointment, or come to drop-in office hours, Thursdays from 1:30-3 pm.
These sessions are designed to help students become more confident and effective writers and can be useful at any stage of the writing process. These are not proofreading or editing sessions, but rather an opportunity to discuss: 

  • writing clearly and effectively
  • incorporating and citing sources
  • structuring and organizing paragraphs & papers
  • improving sentences and grammar
  • performing effective research
