The Writing Studio at Georgia State is a place where writers gather to talk about writing. Writing Studio conferences, both in our studio and online, are open to any student, faculty, or staff of Georgia State University. For Fall 2021, we'll provide a combination of face-to-face and online appointments from Monday-Thursday and online-only appointments Friday-Sunday. Please check the appointment type under the tutor's name when making an appointment; also, refer to our Appointment Info page or contact our Associate Directors at email@example.com for questions about technology or access.
Note: you must have an account in order to sign up for appointments. Also, if you are an undergraduate student, your appointment is 25 minutes; if you are a graduate student, alumni, faculty, and staff, your appointment is 55 minutes.
Our goal is to be a valuable resource for writers across campus and to create a true community of writers at Georgia State University. We are always looking for ways to improve our space and to make our community more vibrant. Help us extend the conversation by submitting your comments or suggestions about the Writing Studio, Write/Chat, or this website. Please email us!
Personal Statements Workshop Series – Presented by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships and the Writing Studio
Workshop #1: November 10th @ 4:30 via Webex.
Workshop #2: November 16th @ 12:00 via Webex.
Are you having challenges fitting your internship, research, or work experiences into a 300-word limit prompt? Trying to decide which accomplishments and experiences would be of most interest to a scholarship selection committee? Unsure how to tie your extracurricular activities anecdote into your interest in graduate school? We’re here to help! The Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (OURF) and the Writing Studio at Georgia State invite you to join us for “Personal Statements 101.”
In this workshop, students will work with Writing Studio tutors and OURF staff to learn how to define the personal statement; identify personal statement do’s and don’ts; identify which writing process works best for them when constructing a personal statement, and start drafting (or revising!) their own personal statements. Students at any stage of the writing process are welcome!

If you are interested in participating, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
