Writing Center

About

The Writing Center is a free tutorial service for Hinds CC students. Working individually with students, tutors offer assistance with any type of written work by talking through assignments, asking questions, and discussing recurring errors. Students can choose to visit a center for a face-to-face session, schedule an online session that is live with video and audio, or submit their completed work for written feedback.

Regardless of the subject, assignment, or stage of the process, all Hinds students, faculty, and employees are invited to use the resources available in the Writing Center. The ultimate goal of the Writing Center is to help students become independent, confident, and proficient writers.

We can help!

  • Brainstorming, selecting a topic, researching, or outlining
  • Generating content or getting past writer’s block
  • Revising drafts of an essay, research paper, speech, presentation, or report
  • Documenting and citing sources in MLA and APA format
  • Filling out a college, job, or scholarship application
  • Drafting a resume or cover letter
  • Tackling recurring grammatical issues with practice and handouts

We also provide:

  • Opportunity and training for students to become peer tutors
  • Laptop computers for use within the center
  • Group workshops or classroom visits on specific topics
  • Writing-themed events, such as Open Mic and Poetry Club
  • A comfortable, judgment-free atmosphere for student writing

Online Scheduling

Our online scheduling service permits students to reserve an appointment in advance. Walk-ins are welcome when a tutor is available. However, we invite students to visit the WConline site specific for the campus they attend; once they sign in, they can view availability on the schedule. If you are a current student, visit the Writing Center’s page in your my.Hinds portal for more information. More information can also be accessed through the Hinds library’s webpage.

Students at the Nursing/Allied Health Center are encouraged to utilize the Jackson ATC Writing Center for assistance. Students on the Utica campus and online or dual-enrolled students are welcome to use any Center’s online services.
