The Writing Center is a free resource available to all BCC students. Staffed by trained writing consultants, we provide guidance and feedback for any writing, in any class, for any reason, at any stage of the writing process.
And we really do mean any kind of writing! Come by with your lab reports, English papers, Nursing assignments, business plans, transfer applications, personal statements, short stories, memoirs, poetry, screenplays, etc. From brainstorming and outlining to development and revision, we're here to help you understand the assignment, strengthen the clarity of your ideas, and sharpen the effectiveness of your writing.
- Book an in-person appointment for Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays
- Submit writing for emailed feedback throughout the week
The Writing Center is a respectful, inclusive space dedicated to supporting student writing across the curriculum. We believe writing facilitates learning and clarifies thinking. We approach writing as a process and encourage students to bring their writing at any stage. We provide appointments and scheduled drop-in hours, and are staffed by peer tutors who have undergone extensive training in writing center methods and practices. We do not edit or rewrite student papers, instead our tutors provide interactive one-on-one sessions in which they help students identify the strengths and weaknesses in their writing and take ownership of their own work.
For the SPRING, 2024 Semester, we will be open from Jan. 30 - May 3, 2024. We are available for in-person appointments and drop-in hours on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., in M-401.
We offer asynchronous remote support (emailed feedback) throughout the week. You can expect personalized feedback within 24 to 48 hours (sometimes sooner). Make sure to share your assignment guidelines!
