About The Writing Center

MCC Writing Center 10 Year Anniversary Logo


On all three MiraCosta campuses, the Writing Center is a safe place for writers of all backgrounds who are seeking to improve their writing. We encourage students to drop in with us to work on their writing, reading, and speaking skills to build academic success through friendly, supportive, and constructive dialogue. Our writing consultants and writing coaches are ready to work with you on any writing assignment from any MiraCosta class!

How does the Writing Center work?

On all three campuses (OCN, SAN, and the CLC), the Writing Center is a place you can drop-in at your convenience to work on your writing, reading, or speeches. Feel free to simply work in our space and when you feel you have a question, sign in to have a writing consultant or coach work with you on brainstorming, organization, understanding your assignment, thesis statements, revision work, reading strategies, parts of speech, practicing speeches, and much more! We can help at any stage of the writing process! The Writing Center is a free service for all currently enrolled MiraCosta students.
