Community Writing Center

About the Community Writing Center

The Community Writing Center (CWC) is a free, writing-coach resource established in the Orem Public Library. The CWC aims to service the civic and professional needs of writers throughout Utah Valley with face-to-face coaching, composition workshops, handouts, and generalized writing practice.


Workshops

Community workshops, presented by UVU tutors and staff, provide exposure to and practice with a variety of writing and composition principles. From the finer points of drafting a resume cover letter to techniques for organizing a business proposal, community members can engage collaboratively with tutors and peers on specific writing topics.


Coaching

UVU tutors and staff provide personalized, face-to-face tutorials for Utah Valley community members. Coaching sessions emphasize a peer-tutoring process wherein students and coaches work collaboratively to address writing concerns and practices. While Community Writing Center coaches can assist with writing of any genre, they specialize in professional (resume's, cover letters, etc.) and civic (letters to government agencies, community projects, etc.) writing.
