Peer Writing Assistants
Peer Writing Assistants (PWAs) work with students at all levels of proficiency and at any stage in the writing process. They have been selected from a pool of qualified applicants and prepared through a thirty-hour intensive training program. Writing assistance is available to all LCC students working on writing projects-not just students in writing classes. We offer one-on-one and small group peer writing assistance for students.
Walk-ins are welcome and are handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments are STRONGLY recommended and can be made by calling us or stopping in during open hours. See our Hours and Appointments page for more information. On-line writing assistance is also available.

Peer Response Video
A video workshop developed by Writing Center staff and designed to teach students to work effectively in peer response writing groups is available for classroom playback via Media Retrieval. Ask for Tape #3751, "An Introduction to Peer Response Writing Groups."
Print Resources for Students
The Writing Center houses a substantial collection of print resources including dictionaries, thesauri, writing handbooks, MLA and APA manuals, reading anthologies, textbooks and a variety of handouts. Students do not need an appointment to use these materials. They may simply stop in during open hours, as space allows. Our Lead Writing Assistants, who maintain the front office counter, are happy to assist them in locating the resources they need to use.

from those who work there.Visiting The Writing Center was almost like an
additional class for me."
