Greetings all. 

My name is Travis Trombley and I am a student as well as a Writing Fellow here  at MCCC. As someone passionate about writing (though not necessarily apt in the art), I will use this blog to discuss the topic of writing as it pertains to us, students,  as well as any general topics that pop into my head. Hopefully I will be able to share some writing tips, expose some of the problems most often found in papers that come into the Writing Center, and generally discuss the various forms of writing necessary for collegiate success.

Live long and prosper
