Scheduling Appointments in the Writing Center

Here in the Writing Center, we do our best to accomodate walk-ins; however, this is not always possible. We encourage students to schedule an appointment ahead of time whenever possible.




Meet with a Consultant on Campus

Students may schedule appointments to meet with a writing center consultant in the Writing Center on the main campus.

You can schedule an appointment by visiting the Writing Center or calling us at 217-786-2341 or toll free at 800-727-4161, extension 62341.


 Expect the following from your conference with a Writing Center Faculty Consultant:

Who? Faculty consultants are part-time and full-time faculty of the college. The instructors you meet with in the Writing Center are the same instructors who teach composition, literature, and humanities courses at Lincoln Land.

Time? You have signed up for an individual appointment on the hour or half hour. This reserves you approximately 20-25 minutes with a faculty consultant.

What?  Consultants are available to work with you on any writing assignment in any class at the college as well as scholarship letters, college application materials and similar documents.

Our policy?  We consult with students to take ownership of their own writing; hence, we do not proofread or edit papers. We will guide you through the writing process, make suggestions, and help you recognize and revise patterns of errors.

What helps?  Bring a copy of the assignment instructions and any work you have completed for it.

Records?  The consultant will keep a record of your name, the class, and the starting and ending times of your conference.

What if? If you have questions or concerns about the consultation, please see the Writing Center Coordinator, Ashley Green. You may contact her in the following ways: call 786-2582,

e-mail , or drop by her office (#0126) in the Center.   




Meet with a Consultant Online

Students who attend classes online or at one of LLCC's Education Service Areas may schedule appointments to meet with a writing center consultant online for a live online chat session during which a consultant will discuss your writing with you. You must "attend" your appointment. Essays will not be proofread and returned via email. If you are interested in submitting your writing and having it returned with written feedback, you should utilize the "Online Tutoring" link on your homepage in Blackboard.
