The Writer's Center
The Writer’s Center is a free resource available to all Coastal Carolina Community College students. It is a collaborative, supportive, and non-evaluative environment intended to help you with your writing in a way that will improve your writing abilities and confidence as a writer. Our tutors are English instructors who will work with you one-on-one to assist with any aspect of the writing process in any subject matter.
The Writer’s Center is on the second floor of the LRC in room 225.

We are open M–F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Our virtual evening hours are M–Th, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Tutors work remotely during evening hours, so they are available for video sessions only.
If this is your first time making an appointment, use the Make an Appointment button above to create an account so we have your information in our system. This information allows us to contact you regarding scheduling and to notify your instructors of your visit. Once you have registered with us the first time, you will not be asked to register again; the “Make an Appointment” button will take you directly to the WC appointment scheduling page.
You will need your Curriculum Code to register with us! You can find your Curriculum Code here.

Note: "New - The Waiting List" is not a type of appointment!
Types of Tutoring
In-person Tutoring sessions are held in the Writer's Center in room 225 on the second floor of the LRC. Please bring two printed copies of your writing and your instructor’s assignment directions.
During a video tutoring session, you will meet with a tutor through a video conference called Microsoft Teams, which is similar to Zoom, so you must be available during your appointment time. You must download the Microsoft Teams app to participate.
Document feedback is offered as a secondary type of session for students who are unavailable during our operating hours. You will attach your Microsoft Word document to your appointment form, and a tutor will download it and send it back to you via email with thorough comments on it. To submit a draft for document feedback tutoring, choose “Document Feedback” from the drop-down menu after clicking “Make an Appointment” to access the correct schedule. Slots do not have a specific time frame assigned to them. Tutors will complete all document feedback appointments no later than 7:00pm on your scheduled appointment day.
NEW - The Waiting List!
If you want to be notified when an appointment is canceled, you can select the link below each day on your schedule that reads "WAITING LIST: [DATE]" and fill out the resulting form to join the waiting list. Optionally, you can elect to be notified of openings only with a specific staff or resource or between specific times.
When an appointment is canceled (and assuming that the appointment time has not passed), the Writer’s Center will email all clients who are on that day's waiting list. If you want to reserve the time slot, you can log in and, as long as someone else hasn't already reserved the slot, make the appointment. If you have opted in to receiving text messages, then your waiting list notification will go out via text instead of email.
Video Tutoring Tutorial
Document Feedback Tutorial
- All tutoring sessions are 45 minutes long. We cannot guarantee that tutors will be able to help you with every aspect of your paper within the session time period. Tutors will focus on the most pressing issues at hand and will encourage you to come back later as needed.
- You may only schedule one appointment per day. For example, if you know you would like to have multiple sessions on a given day, go ahead and schedule one appointment, then you can schedule a return appointment after that session as long as you make revisions to your paper between appointments.
- If you scheduled a video session or document feedback appointment, please make sure you attach your draft and the assignment sheet as .doc or .docx format so tutors can review them electronically.
- To make the most of your Writer’s Center session, schedule appointments well before your paper is due because you’ll need plenty of time to revise your paper after the session.
