Writing Center services are available for free to DSC students, staff and faculty.


1-on-1, 45-minute tutoring appointments

DSC Writing Center consultants are attentive readers who want to engage you in a conversation about your writing and help you plan and revise it. Consultants refrain from editing or grading your work, but instead customize strategies for you to improve your writing and communication skills. Consultations for individuals or small groups start on the hour and half hour and last up to 45 minutes. Making an appointment in advance is the best way to ensure someone will be available to work with you, but you can always walk in to see if someone is available immediately.

You also are welcome to visit any Writing Center location to use our resources and space; we have cutting-edge technology and innovative resources to help you with all stages of your writing process and with all types of writing and communication. The Daytona Beach Campus also is home to the Attic, which is an open, reconfigurable space equipped with couches, work tables, a smartboard, projector, and creative technology.


The Writing Center offers classroom visits or workshops on topics such as using MLA or APA, choosing a topic, or learning presentation software, such as Prezi or PowerPoint. We're happy to work with faculty or groups to create custom writing workshops or to reserve the Attic space.
