Writing and Academic Literacy Center

At NWACC's Writing Center, you'll experience faculty that offer expertise in every step of the writing process. And as a writer, you'll sharpen your skills in grammar and punctuation, utilize research techniques, and avoid plagiarism.

Writing Center Mission Statement

The Writing Center at NWACC is an integral part of the composition program.  Writing Center faculty offer their expertise to respond to writers individually during the writing process.  We strive to develop in the writer the ability to recognize good writing, utilize research techniques, and avoid plagiarism.

Our instructors will read and respond to writing, offer suggestions for improving student drafts, and encourage all to become better writers in a twenty to twenty-five-minute tutoring session.

Our instructors will not “fix” writing, write papers for students, or tell a student what grade a paper should receive.  If students need additional help on an assignment, they are encouraged to return to the Writing Center for further tutoring sessions.
