Writing Center

Christopher Leonard

Director
 

​Wright College's Writing Center invites students to confer with our consultants about any aspect of writing. All consultants are Wright College instructors who hold at least a master’s degree and who teach subjects ranging from English, humanities and speech to biology and psychology. Therefore, our consultants are prepared to meet students wherever they are in the writing process.

Any student may visit the Writing Center to work on any writing project. Students with 4.0 GPAs often visit the Center to continue to hone their skills and develop new ideas. Some simply brainstorm with consultants; others work on resumes and college applications. Our consultants are prepared to work with students in any course, and students may request a consultant in a particular discipline.

Consultants and students often work together on the following:
• Brainstorming
• Understanding an assignment
• Thesis statements
• Explication of reading material
• Grammar, syntax, style, including ESL issues
• Editing techniques
• Developing cultural context
• Supporting statements
• Creative methods
• MLA and APA style
• Research

All appointments must be made in person in L 213. ​

How to prepare for your Writing Center visit: 

You, the student, decide how you want to spend your time at the Writing Center.  

Appointments are normally 30 minutes, and we highly recommend that you make an appointment. You may do this by stopping by the Writing Center (Room L213) and signing the appointment book. 

Our consultants try to accommodate all walk-ins, as well, and ask that you sign the walk-in book so that you are served in a fair and timely manner.  

In addition, below are a few ways to get the most out of your appointments: 

  • Bring your student ID, writing, the assignment sheet, syllabus and any notes from class.
  • Tell your consultant the issues you would like to discuss during the session. For example, you might want to work on a particular area on which your instructor commented on a draft.
  • Be open. You may find that during your conversation with the consultant, your plan for the session may take another path.
  • Remember that writing is a process. Therefore, be prepared to work with the Writing Center more than once.
  • Be an active participant. Your consultant will ask you question and expect you to take an active part in developing your skills. Your consultant will not simply proofread your essay.
  • Remember that consultants are working to help you and want you to be comfortable discussing your writing with them.
