Online Writing Lab - OWL
About the OWL
Welcome to the OWL, the online branch of the Connors Family Learning Center's writing tutorial services. Staffed by graduate and undergraduate readers trained at responding to the work of their peers both critically and constructively, the OWL provides free tutoring assistance to the Boston College community. As with in-person tutoring, our mission is to help students improve their writing at the global level, with attention to argument, organization, and effectiveness, rather than extensive grammatical and syntactical revisions.
We strongly recommend that writers interested in submitting to the OWL first read our Frequently Asked Questions page.
