About the CSN Writing Center

"During my writing center experience, I gained tons of new knowledge while getting help from a writing tutor. The tutor read through my essay aloud and encouraged me to add in any and all extra information relevant to the essay that came to my mind while she read." -- CSN Student

WHAT is it?

The CSN Writing Center is a free, drop-in space for writers to come and speak about their writing with a friendly and qualified reader. It is located on West Charleston, North Las Vegas, and Henderson campuses. Writers can stop in during open hours of operation to talk about their project even before it starts and do not need an appointment.


WHO helps?

Writing Center Assistants are friendly and qualified readers that work one-on-one with any member of the CSN community who would like to discuss his or her written work. Assistants will actively engage writers in conversations about their work that help establish a personal writing and research process, draw out and express their ideas, organize their ideas, commit their ideas to writing, document sources, and revise for readability.


WHO can use it?

Writers of all kinds can visit the CSN Writing Center. Assistants are prepared to help writers from a variety of backgrounds and whose first language is not English, as well as writers who are writing about topics in multiple disciplines including Accounting, Anthropology, Art, Chemistry, Criminal Justice, English, ESL, Geology, History, Hospitality, Management, Nursing, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, and Transportation Technology. Assistants will also consult with writers on projects such as resumes, cover letters, college statement letters, and scholarship essays.
