Submit your paper here if you need help from our online resource.*

After you submit your paper, we try to respond on the next business day via email with an estimated return time for your feedback (generally returned within 72 hours--not counting weekends). Please submit your request as soon as you know you need help. If you wait until your deadline is looming, there may be others who submitted before you (first come, first served), plus you'll need time to read and utilize our suggestions.

*We'll give you our feedback on your writing by email, but will not proofread your entire paper (see below for details).

What we do:

Writers need feedback from readers to help refine their writing. The Writing Center can give you this feedback. Our tutors will talk with you about your writing to help you:

  • brainstorm ideas
  • clarify main points
  • strengthen logic and support
  • smooth out organization
  • integrate sources and credit them properly
  • fine-tune sentence style
  • learn to proofread

Because we want to help you become a better writer, we won't edit or proofread your paper for you. We will help you learn to revise and edit so you will be better able to catch your own errors and improve your own content, organization, and style.
