Writing Center Hours

Get FREE help with essays, research papers, and other college writing assignments during the spring semester by emailing writingcenter@jwcc.edu!

How it Works

Through the end of the summer semester (July 31), the writing center will be open to provide asynchronous (not at the exact same time as submission) tutoring by email.

Attach copies of your paper (Word, Google Docs, any text based format) to your email. Provide relevant information about the type of writing assignment it is and criteria from your instructor; include rubrics if you have them. Please give specific details or questions about the help you need.

The Writing Center is staffed by one tutor. You should expect a response to your submission within 24 hours. Your paper will be reviewed in the order that it was received.

How can the Writing Center help you?

The Writing Center is available to all JWCC students, free of charge, who need help with essays, research papers, and other college writing assignments. Our staff can help you at any stage of the process: choosing and focusing a topic, planning and researching, note taking, formatting in MLA or APA, drafting, and revising. The Writing Center does not provide proofreading services. We are here to work with you one-on-one to provide the personal attention you need and to help you improve your writing skills.​

NOTE: We are not proofreaders. You may not drop off papers. We are here to work with you in person.​
