The Writing Center is a friendly, judgment-free space for all Highline students to get support from with any type of writing. We help student writers strengthen their writing skills through peer collaboration and mentorship.
We don’t just help with English assignments; our consultants are excellent at helping writers from many different classes and styles. They act as experienced readers and writing mentors, and they give suggestions to help you improve as a writer.
Whether a student needs help understanding an assignment, developing ideas, revising a paper using faculty feedback, or addressing grammar issues, the consultant will have a conversation with you and help you develop strategies for completing the current piece of writing as well as support to improve your writing overall.
The consultant will not “fix” your paper for you. Learning happens over time, and the consultant will support you through your progress rather than doing the work for you.
Services for Students
We support student writers in a variety of ways.
One-on-one consultations: Students can schedule either 25– or 50-minute consultations with a writing consultant. They may have up to 2 total hours of consultation each week.
Writing workshops: Each week, consultants also lead workshops about specific writing topics, such as sentence structure, source documentation, and self-assessment. These workshops are group-based and hands-on.
