Writing Center Syllabus Statement:

The Writing Center is located in LARC 229 (second floor of the library building). Contact us at (818) 947-2810 or visit our website.

The Writing Center, staffed with both undergraduate and graduate students, can assist writers at any stage of their writing process through individualized feedback and interactive practice in a comfortable setting. Students can receive help with understanding the assignment, prewriting, drafting, revision, and polishing of final drafts. Although the staff will not proofread or edit papers for students, they will teach students strategies and techniques for how to edit their own papers, helping students to become better writers. One-to-one tutoring sessions last for thirty minutes. At the conclusion of a tutoring session, students can stay and use any of the Center's resources such as reference books, computers, and free handouts. The Writing Center also offers free workshops.
