Writing Center

**Important for Spring 2021:  If you are visiting the Writing Center for an in-person session, please bring two hard copies of your paper so you can give the tutor one copy and maintain social distancing.  Or have a hard copy of the paper for the tutor and have an electronic copy ready for yourself to access on your laptop or a computer in the Center. 

Appointments must be made 20 or more hours in advance.

Cancellations must be made 3 or more hours prior to the scheduled session.

New Online Drop-in Schedule (No Appointment Needed) Mondays 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Tuesdays 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with Lead Tutor Allyson Voerg (beginning March 22).  Click Drop-in Schedule tab and then click "Writing Assistance" to enter the drop-in window.  

The Writing Center provides free writing assistance for SUNY Oswego students across the disciplines.  Our tutors are committed to help 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.

*Education students seeking assistance with the edTPA can only work with this trained writing tutor: Kelly Lennon.
