WCC's physical campus is closed, online services and learning continue. Stay healthy, stay informed. Find information, resources and how we're handling COVID-19 at www.whatcom.edu/COVID19.

To work with WCC's Writing Center readers by email, write us at wccwritingcenter [put in the @ sign] gmail.com

Tell us what you need from us and what kind of interaction will work best.  Our usual system is to make an unlisted (private) video response for you, but we are flexible and have been using other options, such as Zoom conferencing, if you'd like to try to meet live.

In the email, attach your paper (Word or Google doc work best), and please tell us about:

  • The class you're writing for, or the college or job application
  • The writing project itself
  • What you think of your work so far: the process and how it's going
  • What you'd like from us as your readers
  • How you'd like to interact with us

Our usual kind of response will be a video and will come to you within 48 hours with voice comments, using an unlisted/private YouTube video, which can only be accessed by anyone who has the link (you, and us).

In other words, you'll receive a note from us and a link to a screencast that provides our audio over a video of your paper.  Please let us know if you will not be able to access a video or want to try for some other kind of interaction.

Please let us know if you'd like a response in Spanish, or in both Spanish and English. 

If we don't respond to you in two days, please email us again.

Note: we do not check our email during breaks between quarters.
