Writing & Academic Literacy Center

NWACC's Writing & Academic Literacy Center helps you advance in your educational goals. Services include face-to-face consultations, online reviews of papers, and virtual interviews which focus on all steps in the writing process: prewriting, drafting, revising and editing.

Services can help you recognize and produce cogent essays, utilize appropriate research techniques, and avoid plagiarism. Consultants will read and respond to your writing by offering suggestions on how to improve your drafts. They will not proofread or “fix” writing, write a paper for you, or tell you what grade you should receive. The center's services supplement and scaffold classroom training to ensure your assignment requirements are covered.

The center also offers support to the NWACC English faculty as they teach all levels of the composition process.

E-mail / Virtual Consultation

Click the “Submit Your Work” box, complete the form, and attach your draft for feedback from a consultant. Only use the desktop version of Microsoft Word; do not use the app or online version of Word to submit your material. When using Google docs, be sure to convert your paper to a Word Doc before submission as PDF files cannot be reviewed. Consultants review papers Monday - Friday and reply within 24-48 hours. The Writing Center is closed on weekends. Contact write-in@nwacc.edu with questions or to request a virtual consultation.
