If you are unable to participate in a tutorial at the physical Graduate Writing Center, you can submit documents to the Writing Lab online and receive feedback from a graduate tutor within 48 hours - for free. Students can submit their writing at any stage of the writing process.
The Online Writing Lab allows students to submit drafts of their acadmic work (papers, thesis/dissertation chapters, and conference proposals, etc.) and ask a writing tutor for specific feedback.
How to Tag your Paper as a Grad Student Submission on eTutoring.org
Once you are logged in to eTutoring, click on the "Writing Lab" tab (on the right-hand side of your screen). Then, select “Submit a New Writing Assignment.” Fill out the extensive submission form as thoroghly and accurately as possible, as that information will guide your tutor's feedback.
Pay particular attention to the bottom of the form; click on “Graduate Student Submission”
in order to flag your paper as a graduate-level submission. This will ensure that
a graduate-level writing tutor responds to your paper.
