Welcome to the Writing Lab!
In the Writing Lab, writers help other writers improve their work. How do we do this? We provide one-on-one consultations with writers. In these tutorials, we talk with writers who are planning their papers and with others who are in the midst of writing them. Wherever you may be in your writing process, a conversation with another interested writer can help you better achieve your goals.
You may schedule an appointment by calling 419.372.0705 or 419.372.0748 or through the NAVIGATE system.
Writing Lab Brochure (coming soon)
There is no longer a need to physically come to campus to receive help with your writing assignments - It can now be completed online in a variety of subject areas. Students must complete the Online Tutoring Request Form. The form should be submitted electronically with a copy of the paper you are working on and the related assignment sheet (if one was provided by the instructor) to the Writing Lab’s main email address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students should provide at least two business days for papers submitted via email to be returned.
Student questions about Online Tutoring should be directed to the Writing Lab’s main email address (email@example.com).
