Writing and Communication Center

The Writing and Communication Center (WCC) offers free individual consultations on all types of written and spoken communication. The WCC's lecturers help MIT undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff from every department and discipline at MIT. WCC's professional communication experts strategize with individuals to: deepen their content; expand the implications of their data, research, and ideas; analyze the conventions of their academic, technical, or professional disciplines and genres; tailor their messages and organization to different audiences; and craft their style to maximize rhetorical effect. The WCC helps with theses, dissertations, articles for publication, proposals of all kinds, conference papers and talks, slide design, papers for all courses, CVs, and job materials. The WCC has experts in teaching students whose first or strongest language is not English. They help with writing, pronunciation, speaking, and understanding American culture. In addition, the WCC runs support groups for thesis writers and postdocs as well as periodic workshops for various departments. Appointments are made online.
