Writing Program

Welcome

Welcome to the Writing Program, the largest program at Lansing Community College. We now teach about 250 sections of writing a year, and we're growing with every registration period. We have nearly 86 dedicated teachers (11 full time, and approximately 75 part time) who share the common goal of teaching written communication to a broad range of students.

What We Offer

We offer fifteen courses, all transferable, in the Writing Program: WRIT 121 and WRIT 122 (and their Honors versions), Business Writing, Tech Writing, Journalism, and Advanced Writing. While most of our enrollment falls at the Freshman level, we have one of the finest advanced writing programs in a community college, offering courses in advanced Journalism, Design and Layout, Creative Writing I and II, Writing for Publication, Writing the Novel, Seminar in Prose Style, and Forum for Authors and we currently offer an  Associate of Arts Degree in Creative Writing or Associate of Arts Degree in Journalism.

Modes of Delivery

We also offer several modes of delivery of our classes. We teach face-to-face, hybrids, and on-line. We teach from 8 am - 10 pm Monday - Thursday and 8 am - 5 pm Fridays and Saturdays, both on campus and at off-campus Learning Centers.

Assessment

We have led the campus in External Assessment, with fully-developed assessment programs, based on portfolios, in first-year Composition, Business and Tech Writing.

For each of the Writing courses, there is a standard syllabus containing information on textbooks, course requirements, grading systems, a course outline, and Department policies on attendance, incompletes, and withdrawals.
