Writing & Academic Literacy Center

NWACC's Writing & Academic Literacy Center is an integral part of the composition program where faculty offer expertise to writers throughout the writing process. The center strives to develop a writer's ability to recognize good writing, utilize research techniques, and avoid plagiarism.

Instructors read and respond to your written works, offer suggestions for improving drafts, and provide encouragement in tutoring sessions. Instructors will not “fix” written works, write papers for students, or suggest a grade that a paper should receive. 

If you need additional help on an assignment, you are encouraged to connect with the Writing Center for further tutoring sessions.
