The writing center is now open for all Holmes students at the Ridgeland, Goodman and Grenada campuses.

“The students can come here at any stage of their writing process for any writing related assignment that they have,” said writing center coordinator Dr. Stacey Coulter. “We like to work with students of all levels. If you’re a student who struggles with writing, we can help you with that. If you’re excellent writer and you need another set of eyes on your work, which I think everyone does, we can help you with that as well.”

According to Dr. Coulter, appointments can be scheduled through WConline. Links and QR codes can be found at various locations across campus. For in-person appointments, students will meet with a peer tutor at their campus’ writing center location. There are two e-tutoring options including a video call through WConline or students can attach a draft before a peer tutor sends it back to them with feedback.

Ashlyn Lucas is a first semester peer tutor who believes the relatability of peer tutoring is important to helping students with their writing.

“It is a more casual setting to talk to a peer when you’re not in class or not on the professor’s time. You can just sit down, have a discussion and it’s easier to communicate with one another as students,” said Lucas.

In Ridgeland, the writing center is open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 12:30-3 p.m. and Thursday from noon-3 p.m. In Goodman, the hours are from 8-9 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. In Grenada, the hours are Monday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday from 11 a.m.- noon and 1:30- 4 p.m., Wednesday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Thursday from 11 a.m.-noon and 1:30-4 p.m. Additional virtual hours are available Monday through Friday.
