What We Do

Portland Writing Center is here to empower you to become a better writer.

The Portland Writing Center offers one-on-one writing assistance  free of charge to George Fox University graduate and George Fox Connect students. Please note that we are not an editing service. Instead, our student consultants are trained to empower adult students to become better writers by learning the tools necessary to self-critique and self-edit. We offer assistance in many areas, including initial brainstorming, organization, clarity, grammar, word choice, and APA, Turabian, and MLA formatting. Consultations are typically 60 minutes long, although we can sometimes vary that time depending on the scope of a project. We also welcome brief grammar or formatting questions via email or video conference. At the PWC, you have the choice of a Zoom video conference or email consultation. For an email consultation, please plan to be available via Zoom for at least a portion of the assigned time: 

  • For a Zoom consultation, (1) click the PWC Google calendar link below to schedule an appointment, (2) download Zoom to your computer or laptop before your appointment -- a one-time free and easy download that is available here:  https://zoom.us, (3) email the Writing Center consultants at wc@georgefox.edu with the information listed below under “To Schedule an Appointment,” and put the subject line "Zoom Consultation," and (4) on the day of your appointment, click on the link on the Google calendar that will connect you to your consultant at the scheduled time via video conference.
  • For an email consultation, (1) click the PWC Google calendar link below to schedule an appointment, (2) email the Writing Center consultants at wc@georgefox.edu with the information listed below under “To Schedule an Appointment,” and put the subject line "Email Consultation", and (3) wait to receive feedback from the Writing Center via email. Please be available for a 10-minute Zoom conversation at some point during your appointment time.
