​Welcome to the Writing Center at College of the Sequoias

​The Writing Center is here to help you with your writing, whether you are a beginning writer, or a confident, experienced college writer. We’re here to help you figure out what to do next, and to help you learn the tools and strategies you need to do it. If you’ve ever gotten stuck on a paper, been unsure how to start or how to finish, or felt like you had too many ideas in your head, the Writing Center is the place for you. That’s just a small part of what the Writing Center has to offer. To learn more, check out our philosophy, what to expect​, and policies and expectations.
