Welcome to the Writing Center

The BMCC Writing Center at 199 Chambers Street in Room S-510 teaches registered students to think critically, write actively, revise mindfully and proofread carefully. In addition, we provide support for faculty who are incorporating writing pedagogy into their curricula.
