Writing Center

The Hinds Community College Writing Center is a free tutorial service for students enrolled at any HCC campus or branch. Working individually with students, staff members spend as much time as is necessary to diagnose and solve grammar and composition problems. Though Writing Center tutors cannot proofread or edit papers, they can offer review and practice or help with research, organization, and documentation. The ultimate goal of the Writing Center is to help students discover how to become independent, proficient writers.
