Writing Support Through the CFLC


Writing tutoring:

The  tutoring appointments for writing support, including writing support for English Language Learners,  are designed to assist with all stages of the writing process.  During a fifty minute students can brainstorm ideas, go over an outline, or work on a draft.  Tutors do not edit papers.  They will work with you to help your writing improve. Papers to be reviewed during a session should ideally be five to eight pages in length. The CFLC does not have staff to provide writing assistance for dissertations or pieces being submitted for publication. To make an appointment please follow the instructions.  All appointments beginfive to eight pages in length.on the hour (*Except A&P).  


The Online Writing Lab (OWL):

The OWL offers asynchronous, email-based feedback on work in progress. Writers can submit drafts and identify revision priorities through an online form and OWL tutors will deliver written feedback within 48 hours. As in face-to-face sessions, OWL tutorials aim to help writers improve their overall processes, with emphasis on higher-order effectiveness rather than cosmetic editing. 


Submit Your Paper to OWL

The OWL is closed for summer.

We look forward to assisting you with your writing next fall.
