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 these papers to your professors. Face-to-face readers
and OWL (Online Writing Lab) readers are available to help you with your papers from
invention to publication or presentation to your professor. These paper readers won’t
write your papers for you; 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 tutor 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 the prevailing struggle of consistently producing quality
The UWF Writing Lab is not just a writing lab; it is the Writing Lab, where services range
from face-to-face and virtual grammar/tutoring sessions, to the Grammar Hotline, to
training for prospective English teachers.
