Staff:

The Write Spot
currently employs one full-time professional writing assistant and several peer writing assistants. Peer writing assistants are SCC students who have excelled in writing classes at SCC, have been recommended by SCC English faculty, and have been certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. Peer assistants are uniquely qualified to help because they have recently taken many of the same classes that you are now taking.

Drop in or schedule an appointment:

Stop by anytime for a drop-in session. Please note that during busy times, you may have to wait a few minutes for a writing assistant, so please plan for that.
