Since 2010 the writing center has been dedicated to helping students become more competent and confident writers. For the 2020-21 school year, a virtual Writing Center is open! Please send an email to Jill Sisson at jill.sisson@corvallis.k12.or.us at any point in your writing process, and through shared Google Docs or virtual meetings, you can receive help with writing assignments, college essays, or scholarship applications. Assistance is also available for cover letters and resumes for job applications. We look forward to hearing from you!
