The "Write" Help When You Need It

The Writing Center, located in LA 355, is a resource available to all WCC enrolled students as a walk in support for writing assignments across the curriculum. We have English instructors on duty along with a staff of trained and skilled peer tutors during the hours that the Center is open. Faculty and peer tutors are on duty to provide help with any aspect of writing, from coming up with ideas, basic sentence structure, proofreading, to research documentation.

In addition, several writing courses (English 050/051, 090/091, 100, and 111) have Writing Center assignments as the "fourth" credit hour. In each course, students complete exercises to complement their course work, and to further develop their writing skills. The Writing Center also offers placement testing for students who need assistance in selecting a writing course that matches their skill level. The computers located in LA 354 are equipped with Microsoft Office and Internet browsers for student use during many of the Writing Center hours when the room is not being used for class. It is recommended students have a flash drive to save documents.

In addition to the above services to the college, the Writing Center now offers online support to teachers across the curriculum who are looking for new ways to incorporate writing into their coursework. If you are a teacher, visit Writing Across the Curriculum support for teachers for resources and ideas.
