Writing Center

Welcome to the webpage of the DCC Writing Center. We offer free assistance to students working on any writing assignment for any course offered at the college, in addition to other written work such as college application essays and resumes. Friendly student and professional tutors will respond to your writing questions and concerns and will show you effective writing strategies. The Writing Center also has many reference books for writers and handouts on issues about composition, style, and grammar. Stop by to see how we can help.

At the Writing Center, we also:

  • sponsor activities like the bi-annual Write All Night

  • run an annual writing contest with cash prizes for students

  • feature a variety of speakers

  • offer workshops on topics like resumes, scholarship essays, grammar, and MLA/APA citation.

  • plan the Teaching Resource Project for faculty and staff

Check out our links on the sidebar of this page for much more information about the Writing Center’s services.
