At the Writing Center, our main goal is to help you become a better writer. We believe that all writers—of all levels of ability—can benefit from having an experienced writer respond to their work. Our tutors are available to help you at any point of the writing process—from brainstorming, to organizing, to putting the final touches on a bibliography.
Did you know? Even if you haven't scheduled an appointment in advance online, you are welcome to stop by the Writing Center any time for help with an assignment, personal statement, application, and all your writing needs. If a tutor is available, we can take you right away!
Schedule an appointment online!
Check out "How to: Writing Center" for a short tutorial on setting up appointments online.
- Schedule online using http://luc.mywconline.com to make an appointment with a tutor.
- Be on time for your appointment.
Come to the Writing Center with your paper assignment and with rough drafts, if you have them.
Ask questions during your session, and keep an open mind when your tutor makes suggestions.
Remember: The Writing Center is not a fix-it shop; we work with you to improve your writing.
You can cancel an appointment 45 minutes in advance of its start time. Click on your appointment in the mywconline schedule; scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "CANCEL THIS APPOINTMENT."
Appointment Cancellation Policy: The Writing Center is a busy place, and sometimes students have difficulty finding an open appointment time. Because we want as many students as possible to have the opportunity to work with a tutor, we have configured online scheduling so that appointments must be cancelled at least 45 minutes in advance. Please be considerate and make your appointment time available to others if you can’t be there. Thank you!
We understand that English is a second language for many of the writers who confer with us. If you feel that you need extra language assistance, choose a tutor who has some training in ESL/ELL teaching or who is fluent in a second language, as designated next to the tutor's name on the schedule. For example, if the tutor name on the schedule reads "John Doe, ESL," that tutor has some ESL training. If the name reads "Joan Smith, Spanish," that tutor is fluent in Spanish.
The Writing Center has two ESL/ELL Specialists this year: Matthew Stockman and Michael Slager. Look for their availability on the online schedule. They are happy to work with anyone, but they are professionally trained to work with students who are learning English. You can schedule a conference to work on your conversation--just let us know your preference in the online appointment form.
