Events

The Writing Center hosts events to help you explore, enjoy and expand how we express ourselves academically, argumentatively and aesthetically — all while reaffirming writing as a social activity. 

Our workshops are:

  • Free and open to all members of UHCL (students, faculty and staff).
  • Available without any pre-registration.
  • Held in the SSCB 2.101.

For more information or workshop recommendations, contact Conor Bracken at bracken@uhcl.edu or 281-283-3968.
