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.
Western Campus Writing Center
FALL 2021 HOURS
We are open from Tuesday, September 7 through Thursday, December 16. We will be closed Thursday, November 11 for Veterans’ Day and November 25-26 for Thanksgiving. Hours are listed below:
Monday – Thursday 10-7
We are located in G218 on the second floor of the cafeteria and are currently doing a mix of virtual and in person hours. We have a consultant on-call weekends for virtual consultations.
For in-person consultations, just stop by our facility. Masks and social distancing are required. Bringing two copies of your work would be helpful in facilitating a socially distanced consultation.
For web-based feedback or a virtual one-on-one discussion, send an email to email@example.com. Please include your S-number. A consultant will reply back shortly after you send your e-mail. We offer three options for virtual consultation:
- 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.
- WebEx: a consultant will reply back with a web address to discuss your work with you over audio / video chat.
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.
Please take advantage of our services. We’re happy to help you.
Location: G-218 (second floor of the Galleria off of Westwood Cafe.)
