The Writing Center is open and continues to offer support virtually as well. English instructors are available for one-on-one essay conferences, mostly virtual. At the Center we have resources (computers, printers, study space) for student use. Please come by and take a look during our Open Hours.
Students in English Composition classes (100,105, 110, 165, 850) can sign up for one conference per week using Accudemia, which is live for Fall 2021. The conferences begin Wednesday, September 1st.
When you select "New Appointment" in Accudemia you will see the available times, instructors, and the instructor’s method of communication, either Zoom or Google Doc Chat (which has no audio).
Any CSM student, including students not enrolled in an English course, can also request a conference by emailing us at email@example.com.
The Writing Center has a Canvas Page. There you can find the link to Accudemia and our English Composition Tutorials. Each tutorial covers a specific skill and has exercises in a fillable PDF file.

CSM's Writing Center is distinctive among California's community colleges and universities because of the excellent quality of tutoring. At CSM, only English composition instructors help students with their writing during one-on-one conferences—unlike other centers staffed by student tutors, instructional aides, or graduate assistants.The Writing Center has provided this service for CSM students for more than twenty years.
What resources does the Writing Center offer?
In addition to conferences, during our center's open hours, students can use computers, printers, DVD or VHS players; a library of literature, film, textbooks, and reference materials; and tutorials on specific writing skills.
Who can use the Writing Center?
When campus is open, all CSM students can use the Writing Center; it is a quiet and comfortable place to study.
