During November, the LLCC Writing Center is celebrating writing in the field of journalism. Encourage students to visit the center to learn about writing projects associated with journalism and about specific leaders in this career field! Students can also get information about journalism blogs like “Mediashift and Zombie Journalism.”
Join the LLCC Writing Center in celebrating the National Day on Writing! Fall 2019 marks the fifth year that the Writing Center has held week-long activities in recognition of the National Council of Teachers of English initiative. Activities taking place this week in the lower level of the library include:
- Responding to “Why I Write” by contributing to a message board. Upload your response to the LLCC Writing Center’s Facebook page, and get entered for a goody bag drawing at week’s end.
- Taking a selfie with Edgar Allan Poe, and answer some trivia about the master of macabre.
- Enjoying some Halloween candy and pick up an LLCC Writing Center bookmark.
- Browsing the center’s shelf of free books!
During October, the LLCC Writing Center celebrates writing in the field of fire science. Encourage students to visit the center to learn about writing projects associated with fire science and about specific leaders in this career field. Students can also get information about fire science/safety blogs, online journals and web sites like The Fire Research Institute, the International Association of Women in Fire & Emergency Services and the National Association of Fire Investigators.
The LLCC Writing Center would like to remind faculty that they can bring classes to the Writing Center or request that a writing center specialist visit the classroom. We can deliver short presentations on Writing Center services in general or topic-specific presentations upon request. If you would like more information or want to set up a time for your class to meet with the Writing Center, please call us at 786-2341 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The LLCC Writing Center is excited to announce new, formalized walk-in hours Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the fall semester. Walk-in service will be located in the Writing Center behind the staircase, just opposite the Math Center. Students should sign-in for walk-in hours at the Writing Center’s front desk.
Of course, students can still make formal appointments with a faculty tutor, especially if they want to discuss a full draft of a writing assignment, and they may also come to the center during any of the center’s open hours to get help if a tutor or specialist is available, but these designated walk-in hours will allow students to receive more focused tutoring on smaller writing issues during our high-traffic hours.
The attached flyer contains more detailed information. Feel free to share this flyer with your students. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Writing Center at 786-2341 or email@example.com.

Tuesday – 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
