The Write Place: Conroe Center

We at The Write Place are proud to announce the opening of our new Writing-Across-the-Curriculum Writers' Corner at Lone Star College - Conroe Center. Writing consultants are available to assist students, faculty, and staff with any writing-related activity, from brainstorming and research to revising and editing.

You can set up a 30-minute appointment with one of our consultants in person, by phone, or by email, be sure to specify the Conroe Center location if you choose to send an email request. We also welcome walk-ins, though there may be a wait time.

What We Offer

  • Computers with MS Windows 7 and Office 10 (Word, PowerPoint, etc.)
  • One-on-one writing consultations of around 30 minutes in length
  • Quick assistance whenever a consultant is available
  • Dozens of reference handouts and books on writing and related topics
  • ESOL Conversation groups and Writing Workshops (see Schedule)

Our writing consultants do not take over or "fix" your work, but come alongside to help you be a better writer. Our philosophy centers on the process, not a product. We can, however, provide you with tips and techniques for brainstorming, finding a thesis, organizing, adding support, citing correctly, and other writing-related issues. In a writing consultation, the consultant will focus on your goals and use your writing to practice strategies for meeting these goals.

Please review our consultation form for more information on this process. We'd like you to prepare for each session by answering the "Questions for the Student" in part 1.
