Writing Center

Dr. Genie Giaimo, Director, ext. 3635


Open to all members of Bristol Community College and the community, the BCC Writing Centers offer friendly and free in-person consulting for writers of all levels. Staffed by trained faculty and peers, tutors work with students from all academic disciplines, speakers of other languages as well as native speakers of English.  At the WC, tutors teach writers how to develop any part of the writing process—from brainstorming and outlining to revising a final draft—as well as offer guidance on self-correcting grammar and punctuation. The BCC WC is not an editing or proofreading service: it is a place where writers can learn from trained tutors to develop their writing and thinking skills! Visit any of our four locations: Fall River, New Bedford, Attleboro, and Taunton.
