College writing center re-opens

Volunteer instructors author plan for successful writing

The Writing Center is back!

The Laramie County Community College English department announced the re-opening of a writing center on the Cheyenne campus that began the week of Nov. 14.

A group of English instructors on campus have volunteered to serve as writing consultants and to work with students on topics related to writing.

The volunteer instructors said in an email they are giving their time to staff the center because they support student learning in the area of communicating effectively and they thoroughly enjoy working with students on writing.

The Writing Center is currently in the Fine Arts Building in Room 198, also known as the "English pod."

Visiting the Writing Center is currently done on a drop-in basis and is a free service to students.

Because of limited time, instructors will take students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

New hours will be available for the spring semester.

Students should expect a 15- to 20-minute consultation with an instructor to support their work on any phase of the writing process from brainstorming and creating ideas to revising and editing a completed draft of a paper.

Students will be encouraged to take notes throughout the session and mark their own papers with comments, reminders, corrections, etc.

To be fully prepared for a visit to the Writing Center, students are asked to bring their assignment sheet, pre-writing notes, printed draft of the paper and any related readings such as a course textbook or style handbook, etc.
