Portland Writing Center
What We Do
The Portland Writing Center offers one-on-one writing assistance free of charge to GFU graduate and Department of Professional Studies students. Our consultants are trained to empower adult students to become better writers, not merely edit their papers for them. We offer assistance in many areas, including initial brainstorming, organization, clarity, grammar, word choice, and APA, Turabian, and MLA formatting. At the PWC, you have the choice of a face-to-face, Zoom video conference, or email consultation. For a Zoom consultation, be sure to download Zoom to your laptop or computer before your appointment -- a one-time free and easy download that is available here: https://zoom.us. Once you have confirmed that you would like a Zoom appointment, we will include a link on the Google calendar that will connect you to your consultant at the scheduled time.
Note: Consultations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Because consultants have limited hours available each week, we encourage students to schedule an appointment early. Appointments last up to 60 minutes in length. For email consultations, students are asked to schedule an appointment in order to ensure that the consultant has ample time to review the paper; the paper will be returned at the end of the scheduled appointment time, but the student does not need to be available during that time.
