The WCC (Writing & Communication Center) is located in E18-233 (50 Ames Street). It is staffed entirely by communication experts. The WCC offers free professional advice about all writing and oral presentation issues to anyone associated with MIT: undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs, faculty, staff, visiting scientists and scholars, and to the spouses and partners of all of the above. We offer free individual consultations about any writing difficulty, from questions about grammar to matters of style, including difficulties common to writers, such as overcoming writer's block, organizing papers, taking essay exams, revising one's work, or presenting scientific and technical information. They may visit the Center during any stage of the writing process: prewriting, writing a first draft, revising, or editing. The Center works with (but is not limited to) the following: papers for courses, theses, articles and books for publication, grant proposals,teaching and research statements, application essays, CVs and resumes. The Center is not, however, a proofreading or editing service; it helps writers and speakers with sophisticated issues (e.g., audience analysis, effective use of rhetorical and argumentative strategies, stylistic issues). The Center provides specialized help to those for whom English is a second language.
