The BCC-UCF Writing Center

  • …because writers need readers

What is the Writing Center?

  • The Writing Center is a free service offered to the entire BCC-UCF community.
  • Peer and faculty consultants work one-on-one with students, faculty, and staff in all disciplines, at all writing levels, and at all stages of the writing process. You tell us your needs.
  • For example, you can bring your ideas for a personal essay, or bring your research paper ready for polishing. We will work collaboratively to help you improve your writing.

What do we do at the Writing Center?

  • We give you feedback and advice while working with you to improve your writing ability.
  • We help you improve your ability to document sources, overcome writer’s block, organize ideas, revise your writing, and proofread your work.
  • Although we might offer advice on questions of style and clarity, we will never do the writing for you.
  • We point you to resources such as style manuals or editing software.

What should you bring with you to your appointment?

What happens at a consultation?

  • You come to the Writing Center and meet with a friendly consultant.
  • Your consultant asks what you’d like to work on during your consultation.
  • You and your consultant explore strategies for improving your writing.
  • Ultimately, you become a better writer.

What else can you do at the Writing Center?
