Citation + Style Formatting

Saturday, April 18, 10 am-12 noon

Geneva Room   // Join in online!


Therefore, go and write papers on many subjects,

styling them in the name of the APA, Chicago, and Turabian.

Just as a proper Fuller graduate wouldn’t show up to commencement without their mortarboard and hood, a proper Fuller student would never submit a paper without one-inch margins and a bibliography. In this workshop, learn the basics of building citations and formatting your written projects to meet and exceed the requirements of your respective school. You’ll receive instruction and resources on all the major components of formatting style, so that suiting your paper up properly will become second nature.

Verb Tense + Active Voice

Saturday, May 16, 10 am-12 noon

Geneva Room   // Join in online!


God is, has been, and always will be—so now we have lots of verb tenses to work with.

Paul wrote in the first century and hasn’t produced much work since then, and yet we reflect on his epistles in the present tense, understanding that “the greatest of this is [still] love.” The work of the cross continues to transform lives today in the twenty-first century, but we talk about the Atonement as a one-time event way in the past. What gives? In this workshop on verb tenses and active voice, learn how to use the myriad options available to writers. Whether you’re exegeting, working on a book review, or making a psychological assessment, take a moment here in the present to positively influence your writing in the future.

Advanced Composition Methods

Saturday, May 30, 10 am-12 noon

Geneva Room   // Join in online!


Finally, fellow writers, whatever is strong, whatever is compelling, whatever is dynamic, whatever is thoughtful, whatever is robust, whatever gives pushback—if anything is excellent in structure—write on those things..

Now that you’re no longer a seminary rookie, you’re ready for the big leagues of structuring dynamic arguments. All writers are invited to join this session about what makes a good paper great, and why. Learn the secrets behind showing, not telling, and making every bit of your written argument worth its weight in gold. By attending this workshop, you’ll be exposed to more complex methods of building a compelling argument that says exactly what you want it to. Bring the writing prompts for your finals papers and spend time with Writing Center consultants hashing out the optimal outline for your best paper yet.
