Writing Center & The Writing Conference

  • Students come to the Center to meet with English teachers for one-on-one conferences. During conference periods, students receive from instructors advice, direction, and encouragement regarding reading and writing assignments including essays, research papers, journals, brainstorming activities, and analysis and interpretation for written work assigned in Irvine Valley College writing classes only.  Note:  Instructors do not edit, proofread, ghost write, fix, or otherwise correct student writing.
  • Students may use the Center as a study area and may refer to the texts located there:  dictionaries, thesauri, atlas, grammar and research handbooks, Oxford English Dictionary, and numerous anthologies of classic and contemporary writing.
  • Students may use the Center's computers for academic purposes: to browse the Internet, check email, and word process.  In addition, if students purchase a print card, they may use the Center's printer.
