Writing Center OPEN for Spring quarter!

We’re open! Come on by!

open_signThe SVC Writing Center is located in Hodson 101; writing assistance is available on a drop-in or sign-up basis. At the Center, peer writing consultants will work with you one-on-one and provide assistance with focus, structure, organization, style, grammar, or documentation, at any step in the writing process: understanding an assignment, planning/pre-writing, drafting, revision, or editing. When you come to the Center, bring a copy of your assignment and a copy of your draft and/or any pre-writing work you have completed. (By the way, please note that the Writing Center is not a copyediting service; consultants help you to work on your own writing.)

For current hours and more information, click here or call 416-7855.

P.S. We will be open fewer hours on a few days this first week while we recharge our staffing: Monday 10:00-3:00; Tuesday & Thursday 10:00-12:30; Wednesday 10:00-4:00; and Friday 10:00-1:00.
