The Writing Center invites all Graduate students to join our Weekly Writing Workout sessions on Fridays from 2-3:30pm. These sessions assist grad students in finishing and improving writing projects, whether it's already been completed or at the beginning stages of the writing process. With the guidance of our Director, Scott Chiu, and peer writing consultants, you will have the opportunity to discuss your work and get your questions answered. We offer you a peaceful, collaborative, and productive space so you can make progress on your writing and research assignments. Come in, and take advantage of our resources, and get your work done!


The Writing Center hosts a workshop series for all students called, "WRITE ON!" This series will present workshops on a variety of writing-related topics including APA, Paper Organization, Presentation Skills, and more! And, we will provide refreshments as you learn! Please check out the events page for the full lineup of workshops every semester.. All workshops are located in Pearson Library Conference Room #132

Graduate Writing Groups

Graduate writing groups are open to all Cal Lutheran graduate students. There are normally 3 to 5 people in each group based on the programs the students are in — education, management, pyschology, etc. Students may come to The Writing Center with a group already assembled or they may send individual requests through email to be placed in a writing group.
