Writing Center

The purpose of the center is to assist students in the pursuit of excellent writing.

When visiting the Writing Center, please bring a copy of your assignment; even if you're at the brainstorming stage, we can discuss your topic and plans with you.

We encourage you not to wait till the paper's due date to come in, If you do so, there will be little time to revise. The sooner you bring in your project, the better we can help.


How do I schedule an appointment at the writing center?
To schedule an appointment, call the Learning Center at 440-525-7019 or log in to myLakeland and access the Learning Center/Writing center channel from the student tab.

How many appointments can I schedule?
You can schedule up to one appointment each week (Monday through Thursday). If you do not show up for a scheduled appointment, you cannot schedule an appointment in the same week. If you cancel the appointment, you will be able to schedule another appointment.

What if I need more than one hour of help in a week?
You may stop in the writing center and check whether a walk-in session is available.

How many days ahead can I schedule an appointment?
The schedule will show the current day and one week past the current day. The only days shown are the days when the tutoring center is open (Currently Monday through Thursday) and a writing center tutor is working.

Why do I need to select a class before reserving an appointment?
The Learning Center maintains records of which classes students are requesting tutoring and writing center sessions. Also, an email is sent each week to the instructors to let them know that you are making the extra effort by attending tutoring or writing center sessions.

How far in advance can I cancel a writing center appointment?
You can cancel up to 2 hour(s) before your session starts. This time is needed to allow another student to use the timeslot.

How can I check my writing center appointments?
Log in to myLakeland and access the Learning Center/Writing center channel from the student tab to schedule, view, and cancel your writing center appointments.

What should I bring to my writing center appointment?
Bring your assignments, readings, and any drafts of writing you may have done.
