What is the Writing Center?

Writing Center

The Writing Center is the part of the Library & Learning Center where students can get help with all aspects of the writing process.

What You Can Expect From The Writing Center

You will work one-on-one with a trained tutor. Any currently-registered MJC student can make an appointment to work with a tutor on any aspect of writing including:

  • Understanding your assignment or research prompt

  • Brainstorming paper ideas

  • Discussing grammar

  • Learning to recognize errors in punctuation, and more

Trained tutors will help you with your writing but will not write your paper for you. They will empower you to be a more skillful writer.
