The Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free resource for the entire Shaw University community, providing face-to-face, e-tutoring, and online writing appointments. Our mission is to help students become a stronger writer by giving resources to transform a draft into a polished final product. We will not only work on making one specific paper the best it can be, but also help students improve their skills so that every paper is better than the last.

Not only is the Writing Center staff equipped to help students of all skill levels with writing assignments, but we can also assist with personal essays, blog posts, creative writing, scholarship essays, and more.
