How we help you!  The Writing Center provides free writing assistance for SUNY Oswego students across the disciplines and all class ranks.  Our tutors are committed to assist students throughout the various stages of the writing process, including understanding writing assignments, getting started on papers by brainstorming and outlining, and revising drafts.  The Writing Center is NOT an editing service. Therefore, students will come prepared to discuss their writing prompts and papers in a collaborative and welcoming atmosphere.
