Virtual WRIT Center - for written work
Online Submissions are accepted Monday - Sunday. Consultants will be reviewing online submissions during open center hours. (Please allow for 2 working days to be completed) If you need a review sooner, visit our consultants in the Center. They will sit down with you and work through your paper with you. (Plan for at least a 30-minute visit.)
Use our Online Submission Form to send you papers, assignments, letters, resumes, etc., to the WRIT Center for review! It's very similar to our old form but with a new look! Watch the tutorial video below:
Because Delta College is more than one building in University Center and because our students are more than just students, often holding down a full-time job and/or raising a family, we have a Virtual Writing Center to offer advice and assistance anywhere/anytime. All you need to do is answer a few questions and upload your paper and you'll receive thoughtful feedback within 2 working days. Note: For those looking for access to handouts, how-to articles, and example papers, see our Virtual Handbook for Students.
Faculty support -- Because we work in a wonderful community of educators, we can all benefit from each other's knowledge. The Virtual Writing Center is designed to be more than a reference and feedback tool for students; it is also designed to be a resource for instructors. In the Virtual Handbook for Instructors, you will find favorite faculty handouts, assignments, readings, and tutorials.
Whether you need help brainstorming a topic, revising a cover letter for a job application, or just need one final pair of eyes to look over a piece you've written, the Writing Center can help.
We also offer reading support with a variety of new materials and handouts aimed specifically at helping students with textbook reading.
WRIT reading assistance reflects the four key areas of college reading: reading strategies, vocabulary, study skills, and content analysis. Through an entrance inventory, consultants will determine which area will be the most beneficial for an incoming student.
- Reading strategies: Consultants will work with students to develop interaction with text.
- Vocabulary strategies:These are broken down into in-context vocabulary skills and vocabulary storage.
- Study skills:These are the skills that students need to be able to store and retain information for quizzes, tests, exams, certification, careers, or life after class.
- Content Analysis:Content analysis assistance helps a student to process, analyze, and evaluate a text, as well as determine its application.
Information Technology Support
You've been assigned to create blogs, digital stories, and audio essays. What? How? The WRIT Center can assist students with
- access to a scanner, a digital recorder, and software to complete multimedia essays.
- technical advice on using social media sites, such as blogger.com and twitter.com
- understanding the rhetorical situation (audience, purpose, genre, stance, medium)
- being an audience for students to test-run ideas
- developing thoughtful, well-organized, and engaging texts
