Online Writing Lab
For help with writing projects, try the Online Writing Lab.
Check out the OWL's extensive listing of writing resources. As you would expect, grammar, punctuation, and style are covered. But you will also find resources to help you refine your topic, write a thesis statement, organize and outline, and construct paragraphs that support your points. If you need to use a particular documentation style, you can find help with APA style, MLA style, and Chicago style. And if writer's anxiety strikes, you can find tips on how to deal with it. You can even find tips on how to get the most out of your word processor.
To learn how to improve your writing, send a draft to the OWL. Submit your application essay, research paper, or other project, and a qualified writing coach will respond with advice on developing and organizing your document so that it better fulfills its purpose. You will also receive suggestions for improving your writing style, all usually within 24 to 48 hours.
