Writing Center

 
"What is written without effort is, in general, read without pleasure." — Samuel Johnson

 

SERVICES

The Writing Center offers free, individual assistance for any writing assignment you have in any class.  English instructors and instructional assistants are available for drop-in conferences to help you with any writing-related work, including: brainstorming essay ideas, developing a thesis, essay organization and development, using correct documentation format, and how to edit for grammatical and mechanical errors.  The Writing Center also offers the use of computers for writing, research, and completing online learning modules.  Students may print for free one copy of their own written work, such as drafts of essays, college transfer applications, scholarship applications, and other college writing tasks.  (Please note, we can no longer support printing of class generated handouts, syllabi, articles, or other class materials.  Printing is limited to student written work.)

PREPARE FOR YOUR SESSION IN THE WRITING CENTER

  • Do you know what you need help with? Write down one or two questions that you have about your writing; focus on the things that are most important to you to get help with.
  • Bring your prompt/assignment into the Writing Center.
  • Be prepared to spend a finite amount of time with an Instructor or Instructional Assistant (15-20 minutes).
  • Use a flash/USB drive, GoogleDocs, Dropbox, or some other memory tool to save your work.
  • Plan to bring in your assignment at least one day (or more) before it is due.
