Online Writing Center is Open - Now in Canvas!

August 28th, 2017 - 12:14pm

The Online Writing Center is open for business—in Canvas!

The Online Writing Center (OWC) is open 24/7 to help students with writing assignments for all college subjects. Students can get free help with grammar, idea development, and organization, as well as with research and essays. There are self-help materials and instructional specialists (tutors) who respond to student posts within 24 hours. The OWC also assists students with transfer, scholarship, and job applications, including resumes and cover letters. In order to best support students with their writing needs, we need your help getting the word out and customizing the OWC for your students.

If you would like an in-class orientation for your students, please contact the fall 2017 OWC Coordinator, Beth Sheofsky.  If you would like to submit your writing assignments for posting in the OWC so that Instructional Specialists can best guide your students, or if you would like a course forum folder created for your particular course(s), please send your request to Beth at your earliest convenience.

Online writing services are available to faculty and students in all disciplines until the end of the fall semester.
