Writing Center

About Us

The Writing Center at WCM-Q provides consultation and collaborative writing support for all types of writing. Students, staff, and faculty may visit the Center (room C055) to gain feedback on how to communicate more clearly and effectively. We support the writing process, from the initial steps of trying to understand a topic to the final stages of editing. Consultations with Individuals or small groups sharing an appointment can be made in advance or during walk-in hours. Workshops on brainstorming, critical thinking skills, paragraphing, effective introductions, etc. can be easily arranged. We also have a modest Lending Library of poetry, novels, short story collections, MCAT materials, and reference materials. Our Peer Consultants are experienced writers who can give assistance "anytime, anywhere," including evenings and weekends. Their time is typically spent listening to students, talking about assignments and revision strategies, discussing concerns, offering encouragement, and sharing the realities of being a writer at WCM-Q.
