Writing Center

Welcome to the conversation!  Writing serves as one of the primary means for learning and communicating during and beyond college.  As you formulate, write, and revise your projects for any course or other purpose, the LWC Writing Center offers you feedback from trained peer writing consultants.  Individual and combined sessions last 30 to 50 minutes, and services are free to students, faculty, and staff in the Lindsey community.  Scroll down for additional resources.

Our Mission

The mission of the LWC Writing Center is to assist all members of our academic community in developing their writing in a supportive, creative, and caring environment.  Our trained student writing consultants work with writers on a one-to-one basis, discussing writing at any point in the process, from generating ideas to drafting, revising to polishing. 

We work with each writer, considering his or her long-term goals.  Ideally, writers gradually improve with every consultation as they examine their writing processes, habits, and choices.  We understand that no two writers are alike, and our dedicated staff works to bring out the best possible writer in each person regardless of age, cultural background, or writing experience.
