Welcome to the Writing Center at Metropolitan Community College

The Writing Center, staffed by experienced English teachers and writing consultants, provides professional assistance and outreach programs to help students and faculty with written communication across the disciplines and beyond. Simply stated, the Writing Center is a place into which writers invite other writers to dialogue about writing.

“The writing center is a valuable tool. I have always found someone to coach me through tough assignments. Also, it’s a perfect environment to do my work because it’s extremely quiet.”

John, English Composition I Student

“I worked with one writing center consultant for the entire duration of my English Comp I class. Whenever I would come in with a question about one of my papers, the consultant would always give me his undivided attention and would honestly tell me what he thought. I truly looked forward to coming to the writing center and working with him. I even got a paper [that] he helped me [with] [get] published!”

Christian, English Composition I Student

“This is my place of security, hope, and knowledge.…to be able to take a class at Metro and know that there is always someone [in the writing center] to help you reach your next level makes a difference to those like me who used to take education for granted.”

Daniel, English Composition II Student

“If I have questions, the consultants do their best to answer them. If I have an appointment, they study with me until I’m finished. I have things to do too, so I appreciate that my time is valued. If a consultant isn’t comfortable with what I’m asking (for example if they don’t know how to explain grammar), I appreciate when they tell me who I should see instead.”

“Every time I [work with a writing center consultant, I] get real help….The writing center is a good idea. It helps me a lot.”

Alex, ESL Student
