Writing Center

Welcome to The Writing Center

The Writing Center, housed within College of Western Idaho's (CWI) Tutoring Services, is a place where students can get help with academic, professional, and creative writing. We are here to help students with writing projects, regardless of the subject or discipline.

Writing Center tutors are careful readers and listeners. As such, they will not edit papers but will, instead, offer strategies for revision and help identify errors. Tutors can assist you at any stage of the writing process including brainstorming, drafting, revising, and polishing. 

We are here to empower students to succeed in their classes, as well as in all other writing contexts. From research papers and essays to resumes and personal statements, the Writing Center is here for you. Our support is free to all currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. For more information check out our About Us page. 

Please come see us early and often to find out how we can help reduce stress and encourage you toward success! Contact The Writing Center at 208.562.2233, by email at writing@cwi.edu, or follow us on Facebook (CWI Tutoring Services and Writing Center).
