Online Writing Center

Writing Center faculty and teaching assistants provide written responses to your writing (usually within 48-72 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
