Providing assistance to LCC students with writing projects in courses across the curriculum.

Is an online appointment right for you? Considerations before scheduling an online appointment:

  • Do you have stable internet access?
  • Are you familiar with Desire2Learn, or have you completed an online course at LCC?
  • Are you looking for a convenient option that will not require you to come to campus?

If you feel an online appointment is right for you, here's what to expect:

  • A scheduled, 50 minute appointment with an attentive Writing Assistant
  • A live, online interactive chat about your writing via Desire2Learn

"Visits to the Writing Center gave me one-on-one guidance that enhanced my understanding of the writing process. A better understanding of the writing process brought me the confidence to explore my writing potential."

- John Worthy, Human Services Major

A Writing Assistant will work with you on your writing during regular Writing Center hours.  (See the Hours and Appointments page.)

The Writing Assistant can help you with brainstorming ideas, generating a rough draft, polishing your writing, and developing more effective strategies for writing. (Writing Assistants will not edit your papers for you.)

Please remember, it may be easier and more effective to visit The Writing Center in person for assistance with some concerns (eg. MLA/APA documentation). To set up a face-to-face session on campus in The Writing Center, call (517) 483-1907 or stop by 2214 Arts & Sciences. For more information, visit the Hours page.

Are you ready to schedule your online appointment?

  1. To request an online appointment, click on the "Appointment Request Form" button at the top of this page. You can request an appointment up to one week in advance. (If your request is not submitted during normal Writing Center business hours, it will take longer to process.)
  2. You will receive a message back confirming your meeting time OR asking you to select another day/time if a writing assistant is not available during the times you've requested.
  3. In the confirmation message, you will receive instructions for uploading your paper into the Writing Center's Desire2Learn Group site and how to access our chat room for your appointment.

Due to limited staff availability, we might not be able to accommodate every request for on-line assistance. However, we are eager to assist you with your writing needs. Please feel free to contact us for more information about online availability.
