The Tri-C Writing Centers provide a free service for students, faculty, staff and the community. We provide one-on-one consultation, information, and encouragement for writers in all disciplines, from the liberal arts to the physical sciences. The consultants in the Writing Center can help writers during any phase of the writing process, on any subject, from brainstorming to a final copy and anywhere in between. They assist in document preparation, citation style, research, and other technical aspects of the writing process. They also help with creative writing, personal writing, technical communication, and college entrance essays.
The Writing Center consultants do not proofread or provide drop off services. They provide suggestions for improving the writing and for developing a more effective writing process. They are happy to diagnose and discuss grammatical, stylistic, and/or mechanical problems, offer suggestions for improving writing style, and so on. By contrast, second-party proofreading does little to further a writer’s understanding of grammar and mechanics. By diagnosing the problem, the consultants in the Writing Center encourage writers to become stronger self-editors.

- E-mail: a consultant will look over your work and reply with feedback.
- Phone: a consultant will look over your essay and call you back to discuss it. We can also just help you brainstorm over the phone. You will need to let us know your phone number—the Writing Center’s phone doesn’t work since the room is closed.

You should include a description of the assignment, course number, instructor name, and any questions or concerns you have. You should also tell us whether you'd like your instructor informed of your use of the Writing Center.
