The Westshore Writing Commons is a relaxed, comfortable place to work on writing assignments with an English writing consultant. Located in the new Learning Café just outside the faculty offices in the Garden Level of Corporate College West, the Writing Commons is here to help you throughout the writing process, from brainstorming and invention to organization, thesis statements and sentence-level concerns. When you visit us, be sure to bring your assignment sheet as well as your professor’s name. Don’t wait until after your first writing assignment is returned to visit us; stop in soon to meet with one of our consultants. We can help with writing assignments for any class. For questions about the Writing Commons, please contact the English Tutoring Coordinator, Michael Piero, at Michael.Piero@tri-c.edu or 216.987.5401.

The Eastern Campus Writing Center provides free writing consultation for students, faculty, staff, and the community at large. This includes writing for all courses, as well as professional, creative, and personal writing.

No appointments are necessary.  However, to keep consultation time focused and productive, each session generally will be limited to a half hour. 

What kind of help do the consultants offer? 

The consultants in the Writing Center can help writers during any phase of the writing process, on any subject, from brainstorming to a final copy and anywhere in between. They assist in document preparation, citation style, research, and other technical aspects of the writing process. They also help with creative writing, personal writing, technical communication, and college entrance essays.

Will a consultant proofread an essay?

The Writing Center consultants do not proofread. They provide suggestions for improving the writing and for developing a more effective writing process. They are happy to diagnose and discuss grammatical, stylistic, and/or mechanical problems, offer suggestions for improving writing style, and so on.  By contrast, second-party proofreading does little to further a writer’s understanding of grammar and mechanics. By diagnosing the problem, the consultants in the WC encourage writers to become stronger self-editors.

Or, do you need help coming up with ideas for your English 1010 paper? Are you struggling with the organization in your Nursing essay? Would you like to work on drafting your essay in a setting where help is only an arm’s reach away? 

Walk-in or make an appointment with one of our friendly and knowledgeable consultants.
