The PCCC Writing Center

Welcome to the PCCC Writing Center!

The mission of the Writing Center is to support students taking college-level courses, especially those students in Writing Intensive (WI) courses.

We help students at all stages of the writing process, whether it is brainstorming a topic, structuring an essay, or editing and revising.  Consulting is available by appointment only.

The Writing Center is CRLA-certified and offers workshops and training sessions related to Writing Intensive courses for full classes, small groups, and instructors.  It also offers support to students for their Writing Intensive courses in the forms of face-to-face and small group tutoring/instruction and eTutoring, as well as support and help with eTutoring, Blackboard Portfolio, information literacy, and more. 

The Writing Center consultants also work with students preparing to take the CWE in both one-on-one and group sessions.  Students who have never taken the exam before are encouraged to come to the Center for information and practice.  Students who have not passed the exam come to the center to review their non-passing exam and note their mistakes as well as to practice to take the exam again.

The Center is located within the Learning Resource Center and includes space for one-on-one conferencing and small group instruction. The Center has computers and technology to facilitate both face-to-face and online tutoring.  Writing Center tutors conduct both one-one-one and small group tutorials for writing intensive and CWE students.  In addition, the Writing Center holds free weekly writing workshops on topics such as grammar that are open to all PCCC students at any level.
