Writing Studio

The Writing Studio is an informal, comfortable, supportive place to work on your academic writing assignments, digital publications (blogs, wikis, social media), literary competition submissions, transitional (application essays), career search letters and writing for fun!

The mission of the Writing Studio is to strengthen writing skills for all JCC students. The Writing Studio is designed to help students become more effective, confident, and independent writers by providing assistance with writing in courses across the disciplines.

To support the mission, the Writing Studio provides collaborative group sessions, individual mentoring sessions, workshops for students and faculty, faculty consultations, and the opportunity for qualified students to become peer mentors.

The Writing Studio is a collaborative, participatory, and productive addition to writing resources offered at JCC.
