The primary mission of the Writers' Workshop, as distinguished from the University Writing Center, is to support students enrolled in English 102/103P during their first year at NIU. Tutors team with instructors to facilitate a carefully integrated curriculum each week in both fall and spring semesters. These required 50-minute sessions may center on any number of composition-related concerns, whether those be reading comprehension and analysis, content development and organization, or elements of style and mechanics. Sessions are collegial, honoring the perspectives of students, tutors, and instructors.
Although not a "drop-in" center due to the course-specific nature of the Workshop and its set scheduling, we provide continued writing support to former 102/103P students throughout their undergraduate and graduate careers at Northern.
