Your Opportunity to Become a Better Writer

The mission of the Ohio Wesleyan University Writing Center is to provide high-quality, up-to-date, professional instruction and support in all writing tasks and topics for all members of the Ohio Wesleyan Community.

Staffed by professionals, the Ohio Wesleyan University Writing Center is available free of charge to help you become a more confident, effective writer.

We work with all OWU students, from beginning to advanced writers, freshmen to seniors, those who find writing a challenge and those who love to write, on a wide range of writing assignments and on all aspects of the writing process. Students visit the Writing Center to work on every type of writing task from every type of class, and on resumes and cover letters, graduate school application materials and personal statements, scholarship applications, and applications for OWU opportunities, such as off-campus study and TIPIT grants. Writing Center instructors provide constructive suggestions in all areas of writing, including getting ideas, focusing, organizing, paragraphing, citing sources, and proofreading.

We also work with faculty members who consult the Writing Center about writing assignments for their classes, writing across the curriculum development, and their own writing projects. 


We are located in the Sagan Academic Resource Center on the upper level of the R.W. Corns Building in Room 316.


Fall/Spring (August to May): We are open from 9:00 AM to 5: 00 PM Monday through Friday, during the academic year.

Summer (May and June):  Tuesday and Thursday 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (noon) and other times by appointment.
