The Writing Center at Cal State San Marcos is a welcoming learning environment where certified student consultants offer constructive guidance to all writers of all levels at all stages of the writing process.

Consultants work with students on any aspect of a piece of writing, offering strategies, advice, and resources to help the student improve her/his writing abilities. One of the central goals of the Writing Center is to help make better writers, not just better writing. We do this by focusing our feedback on the writing process, not just the paper at hand.

We've got news!

Check out our new CSUSM WC Online Resource Network at WordPress with lots of useful information about the writing process.
