OSU Writing Center

For students seeking remote writing support (OWS written feedback and Zoom): The end of the term is especially busy for the Writing Center's remote support modalities. Please expect longer-than-normal wait times for written feedback and Zoom consultations. Students who are in the Corvallis area can usually receive writing support with no more than a 15 minute wait at most by using the the Undergrad Research & Writing Studio in the Valley Library.

Writing and research consultants provide support with any type of writing project (class assignments, research papers, CVs/resumes, cover letters, job or scholarship applications, etc.) during any point in your writing process. We're excited to work with you on your next writing project! 

Undergrad Research & Writing Studio (the Studio)

Bring your writing or research project to the Undergrad Research & Writing Studio in the Valley Library and receive writing and research support from our peer writing consultants. No appointment is necessary and you can stay as long as you want.
