The Edinboro Writing Center – home of the Writing Scots – is open to all students, faculty and staff who seek assistance with writing for a variety of courses and purposes.

Representatives from the Writing Center, located in room 221 of the William P. Alexander Center, provide guidance as collaborators in the writing process and teach students strategies for composing clear writing in all academic areas – specially in developing, revising and editing papers.

The purpose of the Writing Centers is to lead students to become independent writers and not to simply correct errors or rewrite work. Students can learn critical strategies to use when composing effectively written papers.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, the Writing Center is open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Fridays and 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sundays over Zoom.

Students can make appointments for the Writing Center through Starfish in the MyPennWest portal.
