Description

SVSU has cancelled all face-to-face instruction on its campus, effective March 16 - April 17, due to the coronavirus. This means that they are cancelling the Bay and Saginaw Community Writing Center sessions during this time period.  They will not be at the Butman-Fish Library for the SCWC March 24 or April 14. 

The second and fourth Tuesday of every month from 4pm to 8pm, the Saginaw Community Writing Center (SCWC) will provide FREE writing workshops and one-on-one consultations in the Butman-Fish Library. The SCWC is staffed by trained Saginaw Valley State University Writing Center tutors. There is no need to register for the workshops in advance. Just stop by! The center targets teen and adult writers.

One-on-one Tutoring: All dates 4 to 8pm - Share a piece of writing (a resume, a paper for school, a letter - whatever you've written!) and receive feedback on your work.
