Online Writing Center

OWC Moving URLs Soon: The Online Writing Center’s form for requesting Draft Reviews and Skype Appointments will be permanently switched to a new URL the morning of August 2, 2022. The switch will be made between 8 and 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time. If you have bookmarked or favorited the old URL, you will need to replace it with the new link to the form in order to request tutoring services. The green button under either Draft Reviews or Skype Appointments below will provide you with the new link after the abovementioned date and time.
