Writing Center

The Writing Center’s primary mission is to help members of the Madison College  community become more effective, confident, and successful writers. 

Tutor and student

Summer Hours

Beginning Monday, June 9 the Truax Writing Center, located in the Student Achievement Center on the second floor of the Gateway, will offer the following face-to-face hours:

9:00 am - 2:00 pm  Monday - Thursday. 

The regional campus Writing Center locations will be closed for the summer.  However, our online tutor is working hard all summer long!

Online Appointments

Our online appointment schedule will be set for summer by Tuesday 6/10. If this is your first time making an appointment, follow our directions--How to Make an Appointment--to schedule a session.

Virtual and Email Tutoring

Whether you are taking an online class or you simply do not have extra time on campus to speak with a tutor face-to-face, the Writing Center can offer you options for distance tutoring.

Madison College Faculty

The Writing Center offers direct support to faculty as well. We can assist you with assignment design, rubrics, and training for your students' peer review sessions.  The Writing Center will also present targeted workshops to your students on citation, writing with research, or anything else you'd like them to know. 

If you're interested in one of these services, or you just want someone from the Writing Center do a quick class visit, please contact Writing Center Director, Sarah Z. Johnson at or 246-6595.
