Learning Commons Writing Center

The Learning Commons Writing Center provides Sauk Valley Community College students with one-on-one consultations at every stage of the writing process, from brainstorming how to begin to polishing a final draft. We work with all students, regardless of major or academic department, on any piece of writing, whether it is personal (such as a creative piece written for fun), professional (such as a scholarship essay, cover letter, or resume), or academic (such as an essay or a report for class). 

Consultations are available in-person or online. All Writing Center services are free to all students, and there are no limits on how often a student may use the Writing Center. We are located in Room 3M11 (in the Learning Commons). While we do accept walk-ins, appointments are strongly encouraged as walk-ins are served around scheduled appointments on a first come, first served basis.

If you have any questions, you can reach us by emailing us at writing.center@svcc.edu or by calling 815-835-6398. We offer in-person and online consultations Monday through Thursday from 8am to 6pm and online Friday from 8am to 2pm. All online consultations are by appointment.
