The write corner writing into excellence

Description

In collaboration with The Intersection at UNLV, Dr. Margarita Huerta is pleased to present an academic writing series of 30-minute sessions: The WRITE Corner. Each session will be followed by an optional 30 minutes where participants can choose to stay to do their academic writing.

With a background in Educational Psychology, Dr. Huerta will focus on research-based psychological constructs and concepts related to writing productivity to encourage and motivate you to get writing and to then keep on writing.

So, bring your coffee, tea, hot chocolate (or whatever you want to drink) and join us for mini-writing retreats on the following days and times this semester:
