Writing Center

Southwestern's Writing Center

The Mission of the Southwestern Oregon Community College Writing Center is to support students in all facets of the writing process and to help students become confident, independent writers.

We assist students with the following:

  • How to understand a writing assignment.
  • How to develop, focus and organize ideas.
  • How to create coherent paragraphs.
  • How to integrate and document research.
  • How to find and fix grammatical errors.

We do not edit or proofread. We do not guarantee grades or perfect papers.

We do guarantee expert assistance from professional writers, editors, and teachers who are dedicated to helping each student succeed.

In addition to tutoring services, the Writing Center also provides students access to computers and printing, as well as a quiet place to study and relax. 


Our services are free and no appointment is necessary.
