A Writing Center Session

Writing Center tutors work by appointment with students individually or in small groups (tutors facilitate these group sessions of 2-3 students). To schedule appointments, students can come to L-012 or call (778-5632 or 778-5038). (read more)

The Writing Center’s Spring 2014 Schedule
The Writing Center follows SUNY Broome’s class schedule (we close during breaks and when the campus is closed due to weather or other emergencies). See The Writing Center hours in the column on the right and click the link below for our Summer 2014 Schedule.
How We Work
Because we write to communicate, every writer needs a reader!

This is where the Writing Center comes in. A writing tutor is a live audience member, one who gives instant feedback on the clarity and presentation and development of ideas. (read more)
