The Writing Center
The mission of the TRCC Writing Center is to give all students the tools and support they need to be successful and independent academic writers. We offer a range of services for students, faculty and staff covering four basic areas: walk-in and reserved appointments, classroom presentations, writing resources, and e-mail paper submission.
The Writing Center on WordPress
The Writing Center (http://trccwritingcenter.wordpress.com/) uses the WordPress blogging tool to provide students with writing style, grammar, anti-plagiarism and word processing information. Students also have ways to contribute.
Come by during our open hours with your writing questions. If there is a tutor available, he or she can help you out right there and then. We can help you start a new assignment, revise a draft, or give you editing tips on a final copy.
If you know when you have a writing project coming due, you can reserve a spot on the schedule weeks in advance. Reserved appointments are also available for those who would like to meet weekly with a writing tutor.
Interested faculty and staff can contact the Writing Center Coordinator for assistance in developing course-specific writing assignments, customized in-class presentations, annotated bibliographies covering writing in various disciplines, and editing help with campus-related writing tasks.
A lot of students work full time or have other responsibilities that make it tough to schedule a face-to-face appointment. We offer an e-mail submission service for those who would like to get feedback on their writing via e-mail. Type “WC submission” in the subject line of your e-mail and include the following: your full name and BANNER I.D. number, the name and number of the course for which you are submitting the paper, your instructor’s name, a brief description of the assignment, and any specific concerns you have about you draft. Attach a copy of your paper as a .txt, .rtf, .doc, or .docx file OR cut and paste your text into the body of your e-mail. Send it to TRWritingCenter@threerivers.edu. We will usually get back to you within 24 hours.
