ATTENTION: To reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19, Henry Ford College has made significant changes for the rest of the Winter 2020 semester. Beginning March 23rd, The Writing Center at HFC will offer writing support to all students through our online system ONLY. To use this service, please follow the instructions below:

  • Register for an account by clicking the link to the left. Please register using your HawkMail email address.
  • Choose an available time slot on the schedule and fill out the appointment form. You will be asked to choose an "eTutoring" or "Online" appointment.

    • For "eTutoring" appointments, please attach your document and assignment instructions as Microsoft Word files ONLY (.doc or .docx) or provide a link to a shared Google Doc (make sure it is set so that "anyone with the link can comment"). Include any questions or concerns for your Respondent in the appointment window. Respondents will return your work with comments within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment time.

    • For "Online" appointments, please log in to WCOnline five to ten minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time, select your appointment, and click the link to start or join an online consultation. A new window will appear where you and your Respondent can work.
      • If you prefer to work in Google Docs, simply share a link to your document with your Respondent in the consultation window and you can move the consultation there. Make sure your document is set so that "anyone with the link can comment."

To manage our resources in this time of uncertainty, online appointments are limited to ONE per day and TWO per week.

As always, Respondents will offer comprehensive support to writers with the assignment instructions and the writer's individual goals in mind. While revision strategies may be offered, Respondents will not line-edit or proofread papers. 


The Writing Center at HFC is a hub for exploring, developing, and enacting writing at Henry Ford College. It is a collaborative and relational space where writers, readers, and texts can coexist and get to know each other. The Writing Center is for any writer, at any level, at any stage of the writing process, and provides support as writers think through their writing goals, approaches, and products. Respondents in the Writing Center work with writers to provide them with a fuller understanding of the academic, social, and cultural effects of writing.
