Every paper needs one, but what is a thesis, anyway? We’ll help you understand and develop stronger theses.

The Jefferson Writing Workshop series is free and open to all students who want to improve their writing. No sign-up needed. FREE lunch for the first ten students. We meet every week, usually on Tuesday, in Room 501 from Noon to 1 p.m.
