Welcome to The Writing Zone!
The Writing Zone in the Learning Annex at the Benton Center provides students with writing help on assignments across the curriculum and during any phase of the writing process, including scholarship essays and resumes. 

Writing support for students is designed to cover many aspects of the writing process:  brainstorming, organization, development, prewriting, drafting, revising, identifying patterns of error (i.e. grammar, punctuation, formatting), and documenting and citing sources (MLA, APA, CMS).

The Writing Zone operates on a drop-in basis, and students must be present to receive assistance. Students can receive one-on-one writing help in sessions that average 30 minutes, but sessions can range from 10 minutes to an hour.

Students can also benefit from a variety of learning resources, including access to two computers, a printer, textbooks, handouts for quick clues, and a dedicated study area.

The Writing Zone also supports students from LBCC's ELA program.

You can also submit papers to the Online Writing Lab (OWL). You do not have to be enrolled in a writing class to benefit from our services; we can help with any academic assignment, scholarship essay, job application, or your own work.
