Welcome to UWF's Writing Lab.
Having trouble writing a paper? Having trouble using commas and semicolons, choosing the right pronoun, or making your subjects and verbs agree?
The Writing Lab can help. Graduate and undergraduate Writing Lab assistants are available to review the mechanics of writing with you and help you upgrade the quality of your papers before you submit assignments to your professors. Face-to-face paper readers, Live OWL readers, and OWL (Online Writing Lab) readers are available to help you with your papers from invention to completion. Paper readers won’t write your papers for you, but they will help you write them better.
The UWF Writing Lab is staffed by a group of undergraduate and graduate paper readers and tutors who are trained to assist students in the grammar and mechanics of writing and to read other students' papers for content, manuscript formatting, documentation style, and the conventions of writing (grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.). As students themselves, they know firsthand how hard it can be to consistently produce quality written work, but they also know how satisfying it can be to communicate one's ideas effectively.
The UWF Writing Lab is not just a writing lab; it is the Writing Lab at UWF!
Worried about your sentence structure? Did you use too many commas, or did you not use enough? Bring your paper to a one-on-one session with one of our paper readers. We will correct and discuss grammar, content, organization, and formatting. Make an appointment for a final draft reading, paper in progress reading, or brainstorming session.
Too busy to come in for a Face-to-Face Local Paper Reading but need real-time interaction and feedback? Schedule an appointment for a Face-to-Face Global Paper Reading. We will read your paper with you remotely. You will need a laptop or desktop computer and a reliable Internet connection.
Too far away to come in to the Writing Lab? Submit your paper to the OWL. We will spend an hour correcting your grammar and formatting, providing in-depth comments to help you improve your writing.
Unsure about the difference between “effect” and “affect”? Have a random grammar question you’ve always wondered about? Email or call the Grammar Hotline. We will do some research and find you that answer.
