The Writing Center opens for the spring semester on Monday, February 1st. We are excited to now offer both in-person and virtual tutoring through 3 options:

In-person Tutoring

Come to the Writing Center, Room 111 in the Library basement, Monday to Thursday between 1-9 PM to work with a tutor in person.

Virtual Live Tutoring

The Writing Center will provide live online tutoring through Zoom, a videoconferencing tool. Zoom tutoring is available Sunday, 6-9 PM. These are drop-in hours, so you can click at the link at any point during those times without an appointment. If the demand for Zoom hours goes up, we will expand our hours.

When you join the room, you can discuss your paper and get advice from all your favorite tutors using audio, video, and/or chat through your device. You can share your paper with the tutor as you work and still get the same type of tutoring you typically would in the Writing Center, just through the computer. To access the Zoom meeting room, click on the link below, or put the meeting ID into zoom.us or the Zoom app. You may access Zoom from your computer, tablet, or phone. If other students are in the virtual room, please be patient until a tutor is available.

Email Feedback

The Writing Center will provide feedback on writing assignments through email. To receive feedback, email a Word document of your work to writingcenter@cowley.edu with the following pieces of information:

  • Your name, ID number, and the course
  • The assignment directions and the due date
  • An explanation of the specific areas of writing where you would like assistance

We will return a copy of your assignment with our comments to you within 48 hours (72 hours over weekends). Make sure to give yourself enough time to get feedback before the due date. Keep in mind that we are not an editing service and will not fix all your mistakes. Instead, we will provide advice and resources to help you revise the paper on your own, just like we would in a live tutoring session.

No idea where to start on your essay? Confused by citations? Plagued by run-on sentences? The Writing Center has what you need!

At the Writing Center, students receive free support on any writing assignment for any class at any stage in the writing process.

The Writing Center can help students with any writing assignment for any class, whether it's a summary of a reading for History, a lab report for Biology, a personal response for Psychology, or a full essay for Composition. We can also provide support on resumes, cover letters, personal statements, and scholarship essays. Come by at any stage in the writing process from brainstorming ideas to editing the final draft.

The Writing Center provides many services. We offer traditional one-on-one writing tutoring with faculty and peer tutors. Just want to ask a couple questions? No problem! You can come work on your own in the computer lab and ask questions as you write. We also provide several group workshops throughout the semester on topics such as resumes, personal statements, and timed writing. Lastly, the Writing Center hosts writing groups and events, including the Finals Study Party at the end of each semester.

No need to make an appointment, so stop by today!
