Online Writing Lab

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) is closed for the term. We will reopen for fall term on Monday, October 6, 2014.

The Online Writing Lab allows you to send your writing project to a Writing Assistant who will help you with such things as organizing, developing, and revising your work. Writing Assistants won´t proofread your paper, but they will analyze your work for errors that reoccur so that you can proofread the paper yourself. They will use one or two examples from your writing to help explain the error and how to correct it. Writing Assistants will also make suggestions on the content, structure, and style of your writing to help you write more effectively.

We will notify you as soon as possible when we expect to respond to your submission. Keep in mind that submissions which are received over the weekend or during especially busy periods (dead week and finals week) may take longer to schedule. The Online Writing Lab is closed over winter vacation and during spring break.
