WSIP Writing Workshops for International Women Writers is a series of three workshops in Spring 2024. These workshops will offer participants refreshers on common issues related to academic writing, opportunities to practice writing strategies, and space to connect with one another. This series of workshops is open to International women students, staff, and faculty at the University of Arizona. We will discuss writing concerns, patterns, and practices to help support success in academic writing. Attend one or attend all-- it's up to you! Please bring your writing questions and projects with you. Workshops are FREE to attend and will be available online only.


Knowing who you are, where you “fit,” and what challenges you are issues that are talked about often in U.S. academia and especially for underrepresented populations. Why? In this workshop we will discuss how to navigate these conversations as you simultaneously engage in writing and other academic endeavors. 


We often talk about the importance of first impressions in academic writing. What does that mean when we are preparing to launch a scholarship, fellowship, or job application? In this workshop we will discuss statements that are common to these packets, such as personal, diversity, and research statements.


While sentence structure and style issues are not signifiers of “good” or “bad” writing, they are often the issues that are considered most pressing for writers. Why? In this workshop we will address common patterns as well as how to manage anxiety around them. REGISTER

This series is supported by a mini-grant from the UA Commission on the Status of Women.


We are excited to introduce a new series of workshops. Each semester, we'll offer an online workshop free and open to all writers (students and other writers from any institution).  Workshops are FREE to attend. 

Spring 2024: Everyone is a Writer 

Whether it is memos, emails, or reports, every writer faces insecurities during the writing process. Administrative personnel need to write simple correspondence in a clear and concise manner. During the writing process, we might perceive ourselves as too informal, or unprofessional. We might fear being judged by our readers because of our writing style, sentence structure, or mechanical errors. This workshop focuses on raising awareness of the writing skills we already possess to determine what adjustments we can make to decrease our writing stressors and increase confidence and strengths as writers.

What Participants will gain: Participants will explore the stages of the writing process to determine areas of strength and areas that could be adjusted. Participants will receive tips for how to get started with writing, how to conduct an audience analysis, and how to revise their products with the goal to boost their writerly confidence, productivity, and final product.

Target Audience: A workshop developed for admin staff and assistants, program coordinators, managers, and secretaries. Everyone welcome!
