Portland Writing Center

WHAT WE DO

We work with graduate and professional studies students to improve their writing. No matter what the discipline is, clear, effective writing is imperative. We are not an editing service - we want to empower students become better writers, not merely edit their papers for them. Face-to-face consultations are usually the most effective, but if an in-person appointment cannot be made, papers can be sent via email. A consultant will make comments on the paper and send it back.

Note: Consultations will be done via appointment only on a first come, first served basis. With limited hours available each week, we encourage students to schedule an appointment early. Appointments last up to 50 minutes in length. For email consultations, papers will be returned at the end of the scheduled appointment time.
