Meet one-on-one with experienced writing consultants who will provide feedback and support for any kind of writing assignment at any stage of the process, from brainstorming to final revision. We do not “correct” papers, but we will discuss strategies to help you succeed in your writing—from grammar to structuring an argument. Our goal is to help you build your skills to become a stronger, more confident writer. No time for a one-on-one appointment?  We also offer writing consultations by email.  Send us your paper and a copy of your assignment, and a tutor will look over your paper and provide feedback. 

We offer a variety of informational worksheets on writing topics ranging from comma splices and sentence fragments to developing paragraphs and writing research papers. Feel free to drop in to look through our resources and take the ones you need. These resources are available any time the library is open.  You can also access these resources, plus videos and more, in our MCC Success Center Canvas course
