Online Writing Center

Writing Center faculty and teaching assistants provide written responses to your writing (usually within 48 hours) after you’ve posted it in Blackboard.

Consultants do not edit work, they instruct with the goal of helping you read your own work critically. We can help you -

  • Brainstorm
  • Improve sentence structure
  • Develop paragraphs
  • Focus your thesis
  • Document sources
  • Much more

Rules for Submissions

  • You may submit two times per week
  • Attach or copy and paste the assignment
  • Tell your tutor one or two specific issues for comments
  • List the due date
  • Attach or copy and paste a piece of writing consultants can read in 5-10 minutes
