Who are we?  
The CWC is the place for students, staff, and even professors to pursue excellence in writing. Being able to write is an invaluable real world skill, and we as CWC consultants work to help those who visit expand upon and enrich their writing.
 
First established in 1995 under the aegis of the English department, the CWC is now an independent unit of the college campus and growing every year.  The staff is available six days and five evenings a week to look at any paper: essays, short stories, resumes, or poems. If it's in writing, we will help you with it! We are also willing to help you in any stage of the writing process: brainstorming, organization, and revising. We stock a number of books designed to help writers of all kinds, including dictionaries, citation manuals (MLA, APA, Chicago style, etc.), business writing and journalism manuals, magazines of varied topics, and journals and books on specific areas of study.

The staff is comprised of students in every division and the director is Dr. Cindy Cochran, also a member of the English Department.  Occasionally other faculty and staff members volunteer at the center.
