Focus Groups

Writing Success Workshops

The FAMU Writing Resource Center (WRC), which is funded by Title III and supported by the Office of University Retention and the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, offers free, thirty-minute and one-hour writing and grammar tutorials for all students enrolled at FAMU.

The WRC also offers Focus Groups and Workshops that address a particular language skill, writing strategy, or essay genre and give students an opportunity to interact with peers who are interested in improving in the same areas.

Specifically, Focus Groups are designed to reinforce fundamental skills that have already been addressed and mastered to some degree on an individual level; therefore, students must complete one or more tutorials (depending on progress) and receive a referral from their tutor(s) in order to participate. For more details, please click on our Focus Groups link.

Workshops are designed to provide an overview of important topics that contribute to writing success; therefore, a referral is not needed. Instead, all participants should register by following the procedures for scheduling an appointment. At each workshop, participants will be asked to sign in with their Rattler ID cards, so please plan accordingly. To view the workshop schedule, click on our Writing Success Workshops link.

Instructors who would like to request an In-class Workshop on one of the Writing Success topics (or on a topic that can be tailored to address the specific needs of their classes) should complete a “Request for In-class Workshops” form, which can be found on our website under WRC Forms.
