Writing

Every writer I know has trouble writing. ~ Joseph Heller

clarinda_flanneryOur writing classes create a supportive and constructive learning environment for students who struggle with writing. For students who place below college level writing, we have an accelerated plan, where students co-enroll in ENG 091 and ENG 131, completing both in one semester, saving money and time. Our students have been phenomenally successful in this course. Our goal is for students to develop a new sense of who they are as writers, and feel more comfortable and confident when they write. THE SUCCESS OF OUR STUDENTS IS OUR MISSION.
