The Oberlin College Writing Associates Program is committed to sparking conversations about strategies for effective oral and written communication in a wide variety of spaces and formats on campus.
We offer workshops on a variety of topics, which can be tailored to specific needs or interests.
Some of our workshops and events are open to the public, while others are scheduled by request for specific groups or classes. If you are interested in having us lead a workshop, contact us and we would be happy to discuss it with you:
