The Writing Center
Who We Are
Salem College Writing Center (SCWC) is a place where students can learn more about writing techniques, discuss their writing concerns and gain knowledge about the “writing process.” We are a team of writing professionals and students who know what it takes to produce an outstanding piece of work, be it academic, scholarly, or creative.
The vision and goal for Salem College Writing Center (SCWC) is to provide a friendly and welcoming place where students will not be afraid to show their writing skills and learn more. The tutoring sessions you experience will be designed to help you gain insight into writing. SCWC will be a place that will open at reasonable hours for all students, faculty and tutors. The writing process will be taken seriously and will be understood that perfection cannot be completed in one session; therefore, we will encourage follow up visits. SCWC will strive to eliminate the notion that asking for help means that you’re a “bad” writer (even good writers have helpers). We will strive to make resources available for graduate students and students who work full time such as online tutoring and occasional weekend workshops. All of the tutors will be trained in the writing and tutoring process so they can properly assist students. Finally, our vision is to have every student leave SCWC knowing how to apply their learned concepts to their future projects.
We at the Writing Center look forward to working with you on your writing needs!
