Saginaw Community Writing Center
Founded in October 2015, The Saginaw Community Writing Center (SCWC) is the first on-site community writing center in the state of Michigan, staffed by trained SVSU tutors to help any member of the Saginaw community on any writing project. We can help you write a college application essay, create an effective resume and cover letter, craft a short story or poem--or help develop any other type of writing you might do.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Writing Center isn't able to meet at Butman-Fish Library as normal, but the center is now offering free online writing consultations to any writer in the area. See CommunityWritingCenter.com for more information. Copies of the Still Life Literary Arts Journal are available online and at Butman-Fish Library while supplies last.
