    About the Writing and Media Center
    The Writing and Media Center (WMC) helps students become effective, confident communicators. We support students during all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to revising, as well as with oral, visual, and electronic communication. While we can help students identify patterns and trends in their spelling and grammar, we do not provide editing services. We offer one-on-one and group consultations online and in person.
