We had a great year with our students! We saw great progress in students’ work, and were impressed by students’ dedication to improving their academic writing skills. It was a pleasure working with you all this year.
Have a great summer and we’ll see you in the fall!
The Writing Center is excited to be approaching four years of service to SVC’s Mount Vernon Campus!
Interested in some feedback or assistance on your class writing assignments? The Writing Center is staffed with peer consultants, all current or recent SVC students, ready to assist you with any aspect of your writing for your college classes: understanding an assignment, generating ideas, revising drafts, documenting sources–whatever you need!
We’re located on the beautiful third floor of Lewis Hall (wait till you see the view from our doors!). Drop in for a 30-minute session (see hours below), or sign up to be sure a consultant will be available when you want to meet.
We’re open Monday 9:00-3:30; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9:00-4:00; and Friday 9:00-2:00.
We can’t wait to see you!
Room change: Workshops will be held in L-311 which is located right across from
the Writing Center.
The Writing Center has teamed up again with Western Washington University Admissions Director Jeanne Gaffney to help transfer students understand what information to include in an application essay and personal statement. The workshop is especially helpful for first year students who like to plan ahead and second year students who aren’t sure how to get started. All the information presented can easily be applied to any university application essay! See you there!
We’re hosting our first workshop of this academic year TOMORROW, Sept. 29, at 1:30 with “Don’t Piss Off Your Instructor,” with Ted O’Connell of the English Department. See the details below.
This workshop was very popular last year–funny AND informative! Come find out what you can do (and NOT do) when you write for college instructors so that you don’t, ahem, frustrate them. Continue reading
School’s out for summer! And the Writing Center is closed until Fall quarter. Check back in then for updates, schedules, and new fun stuff!
If you would like to work with a writing tutor during Summer quarter, check out the Tutoring Center on the second floor of Lewis Hall.
See you in the fall!
