Summer Enrichment Writing Workshop

The Summer Enrichment Writing Workshop (SEWW) gives incoming freshmen placed into a preparatory writing course the opportunity to sharpen their writing skills before coming to UIC in the fall. Structured as either an in-person or online workshop, SEWW gives students the opportunity to write projects in two different genres; brush up on their grammar, note-taking, critical reading, and study skills; and learn about the drafting and revising process that's crucial to success in English 160. Students who placed into ENGL060, ENGL 070, or ENGL 071 as a result of the Writing Placement Exam will have the chance to petition for a higher course placement through a writing portfolio process at the end of the workshop. In SEWW, you will get to know your instructors, gain experience in the writing you'll be doing in your first year, and get familiar with UIC so you'll begin the fall semester fully equipped to succeed!


Tuesday, June 27 at 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM OR 2 PM - 5 PM until Thursday, August 3, 2023 at 12:00 PM (On-Campus OR On-line Synchronous)


Incoming freshmen who were placed into ENGL 060, ENGL 070, or ENGL 071 through their Writing Placement Exam are eligible to take the workshop for the opportunity to receive a higher course placement.
