The Writing Center

The Writing Center is a FREE and open resource for the entire Shaw University community, providing both face-to-face and online appointments. Our job is to make you a stronger writer by giving you choices that will help you transform your draft to a polished final product. We’ll not only work on making one specific paper the best it can be, but we’ll help you improve your skills so that every paper is better than the last. Whether you want someone else to take a look at a draft, or just want a comfortable place to write, the Writing Center is here for you.

Writing is power, whether it is the power to secure employment, or the power to bring out emotion in a reader. Giving students the ability to grasp that power and project their authentic voice into whatever mode or genre is called for is the ultimate objective of the writing center.
