The primary mission of Ada Stokes Writing Center is to help BLC students grow as critical thinkers and writers. As such, tutors offer support in the areas of academic essay writing, creative writing, cover letter writing, resume writing, and graduate application writing. The center is staffed with friendly and effective tutors who are dedicated to the writing process, including understanding assignments, brainstorming techniques, drafting, revising, and editing. We're here to serve! 

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are given priority. Thank you.
