Although the physical writing center at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) has allowed us to reach many students and instructors, we still believe that a writing center is a “place without walls”; it is an idea; it is a place for discussion, for seeking, for sharing, and should not depend on particular physical locations. We like the idea of being “wall-less” because it posits that what we do in a writing center represents a better way to write, and should occur anywhere writing occurs. To fulfill this notion, we established the writing center at several physical locations throughout our multicampus community college with the idea that it could be a resource for both students and faculty. Nonetheless, we were concerned that the program was not reaching its largest possible audience. To reach students and faculty more effectively, we introduced the SLCC Online Writing Center.
