The Lincoln Writing Center is a free academic-support center, designed to enhance the writing skills of every student in every subject. Our writing coaches, comprised of Lincoln staff and Portland State University Graduate students, are excellent writers and researchers, trained in providing one-on-one support to students. The contribution and educational diversity of the Writing Center coaches gives Lincoln students the opportunity to work with a tutor who best suits their individual needs.

As some form of writing is required in every subject, the Writing Center is committed to helping every student succeed in every stage of the writing process.

  • Understanding assignment directions
  • Brainstorming
  • Creating an outline
  • Developing a thesis statement
  • Logical transition and fluency
  • Citations (MLA, APA)
  • Developing techniques for successful revision
  • Identifying common error patterns
Writing Center appointments can be made up to one week in advance. Walk-in appointments will be granted when a tutor is available.
