"I have fallen in love with the imagination. And if you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere, and it can do anything."

The Writing Center -- on the Yakima and Grandview campuses -- is a resource for YV​C students and faculty. Our primary purpose is to guide students to become better writers in a college setting.

We work with writers at any stage of the writing process, from getting started to final draft. Students may bring an assignment, an idea, or a draft to the Center and meet with a trained writing consultant.

If you can't get to one of the Centers, we can give you feedback on your paper online through our Online Consultations link. 

Two Locations

Yakima Campus: G125,  574-4829
Grandview Campus: L101, 882-7073


  • Individual Consultations
  • Online Consultations

We also offer: ​MLA, APA, and Punctuation Workshops (Monster Workshops), credit courses, writing resources, helpful handouts (see resources link for online downloads), style manuals for use in the center, dictionaries and books about writing, and Inspiration for clustering and creating outlines. We also provide a comfortable place to write and study, a limited number of computer work stations for writing, a space for peer groups to meet, and spoken word events and guest speakers.

"My main goal for the Writing Center is to create a rich, collaborative environment where writers of all levels and experience have the opportunity to receive intelligent, informed feedback on their works in progress."
