The HCC Writing Center is a free service for students, faculty, and staff. We offer writing assistance and guidance with written assignments/projects in a variety of academic disciplines. Our writing consultants and trained student tutors will be able to help with any stage of the writing process (brainstorming, outlining, revision, and editing), citations, annotated bibliographies, research strategies, etc. A bank of web resources for writers and instructors will also be available.
The Center is currently located in the Administration Bldg., Room AD205.
If your schedule doesn’t permit you to visit during regular hours, please contact Lilia Joy at (270) 831-9641 to make arrangements to meet with a tutor at a mutually convenient time.
Writing Consultants: Lilia Joy, Associate Professor of English; Bill Gary, Professor of English; Dr. David Fritts, Professor of English; Sharon Burton, Professor of English; Susan Thurman, Instructor of Reading and English; and Don Rose, Instructor of English
Writing Center Assistants/Peer Tutors: Gavin Gaddis and Benny Junker.
Students may now submit their papers to the Writing Center in advance, before they come to see a writing consultant in person. Please email your work as an attachment. Inside the message, please specify what parts of your paper you need to improve or what questions you have about it. Please also indicate when you would like to meet with the writing consultant considering the center work hours and providing at least a 24 hour advance notice. The Writing Center staff will acknowledge the receipt of your work and propose the time for the tutoring session. A writing consultant will review your work in advance to make the upcoming tutoring session more effective.
Note: The Writing Center does not provide electronic feedback at this time. You will need to come to a face-to-face tutoring session to discuss your paper/assignment.
Interested in being a writing center assistant? Students who completed ENG101 and ENG102 with a B or an A and qualify for a work-study program (fill out an application with the Financial Aid office) are welcome to apply. We’ll train. Contact David Fritts for more information
