To participate, write your best and scariest Halloween fiction, and submit it to wcc@cbu.edu by noon on October 28.  (Please, only one entry per individual.)  After removing names, lead WCC consultants will judge the entries anonymously and choose the three scariest stories, whose authors will get a very cool prize!

Get ready to get spooky at the WCC! 

The WCC provides services to aid the whole of CBU in a wide range of communicative projects, and as such, the WCC is dedicated to helping students be successful communicators.  

The WCC is not structured as a tutoring service; its goal is to be a space for open collaboration between students and consultants to allow student projects to reach their desired level of achievement. Consultants, who represent majors in all four CBU schools, are all interested in communication and helping others develop communicative excellence. The WCC does not work solely on essays, as examples of appropriate projects for consultation include:

Essays
Research papers
Technical reports
Speeches
Digital projects
Lab reports
Presentations
Creative writing
Business letters
Poetry
Fiction
Dramatic writing

The WCC assists students in every stage of the process of crafting any and all of these project types. Consultants are trained and willing to help and answer questions about all of the following:

  • Analyzing and understanding an assignment
  • Brainstorming
  • Revising and editing
  • Proofreading
  • Organization and presentation

Dr. Clayann Gilliam Panetta, Professor in the Department of Literature and Languages, is the Director of the WCC. She can be reached at cpanetta@cbu.edu and (901) 321-3955.
