Welcome to the Writing Center

A Writing Center Session

The Writing Center's professional tutors are eager to help students in any course, regardless of their level of experience, expertise or confidence as writers.

 The Writing Center is located in L-012.

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 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 Fall 2016 Schedule.

How We Work

Because we write to communicate, every writer needs a reader!

At the most basic level we write to express our ideas, to share them with others. As Nigel Hamilton so aptly noted, "If the reader doesn't understand what you're saying, you're talking to yourself."

Writers publish to communicate. So the writer's biggest fear is being unclear.

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)
