Writing Center

The Writing Center is open to all students at Alamance Community College and may be used for any writing assignment in any course, as well as for other important writing tasks such as resumes and application essays. Here you will find consultants who can offer guidance for any part of the writing process from brainstorming to final revision. A writing consultant will encourage you to explore ideas and will ask you questions about development, organization, grammar, and mechanics. Viewing writing as a process will help you to meet your own goals as a writer as well as to meet the requirements of a particular assignment. Over time, this process will improve your skill and help you achieve your academic and career goals. The Center offers

  • Individual sessions, by appointment or walk-in, with a writing consultant who will read your paper and ask questions that will help you revise for development, organization, grammar, and mechanics.
  • Online consultations (etutoring sessions where you submit your paper as an attached file and receive written feedback) for help with writing tasks if you cannot come to the Center in person.
  • Answers to specific short questions about your writing assignments by emailing writing.center@access.alamancecc.edu (Monday through Friday).
  • Computer space where you can revise after a consultation and ask questions as they arise.

To make an appointment, register online at https://alamance.mywconline.com or come to the Writing Center, located at the Carrington-Scott Campus, Room 354 of the Main Building in the Academic Skills Lab (behind the Information Desk area). Our hours are

Fall and spring semesters: Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Summer semester: Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to noon.

As you plan your work for the semester, keep in mind that you will need time to revise after a writing consultation. Sometimes we get booked up as well, so please try to make your appointments ahead of time. You may also cancel an appointment yourself if you can’t make it, which leaves necessary space for other students.
