The Writing Center is located in the Library in Scott Hall and the staff provides students with a friendly supportive team to help you succeed at college level writing. Our Writing Center tutors do not edit or proofread essays but instead focus on the ideas and content of essays. Appointments are suggested, but drop-ins are welcome.
The DSLCC Writing Center has moved to online tutoring until further notice. Our priority is the health and well-being of our students, staff, and faculty as we respond to this evolving threat to our campus and community.
Student instruction for setting up a virtual appointment with the Writing Center:
