An estimated turnaround time is provided on the site. You will receive feedback electronically; be sure to provide as much information about the assignment as possible to get the best feedback possible.

Purpose Statement

The Writing Center’s purpose is to support all GHC students as they increase their awareness, practice skills, and develop confidence and independence with regards to effective writing, reading, and revising in academic and professional contexts.

  • We provide one-to-one tutorials, tailored to each student, for all academic and professional writing projects.
  • We cultivate students’ self-reflection, ownership in their writing, and attention to writing processes.
  • We supply and develop resources—including printed examples, guides, and instructional handouts—to aid in students’ growth as writers.
  • We develop services that complement course instruction, including writing lab classes and group tutorials to support students’ work in writing-intensive classes.
