In addition to our in-person tutoring services, the Writing Center also sponsors "The Write Site." Through this service Providence College students may submit essays up to seven double-spaced pages in length and receive written feedback from a tutor within 48 hours.
Like the Writing Center's drop-in service, The Write Site is built around the concept of writing as a process. Students are asked to identify their own concerns about their writing before submitting their work; and tutors respond to those concerns so that the online exchange is collaborative rather than prescriptive. The Write Site also offers an array of resources for writers and writing teachers; these include links to research style guides (e.g., MLA, APA, etc.) and grammar tips, as well as information regarding plagiarism, writer's block, the writing process, and responding to student writing.
