The Write Place is the ARC’s writing lab, located in Spangler 206B. Writing tutors are currently available online to assist students in all aspects of the writing process, including thesis formation, paragraph development, organization, citation, and punctuation questions.

While ODU is conducting courses online, writing tutoring will be conducted over email with a 24-48 hour turnaround time for all requests. Here's how it works:

Contact the Write Place through email (writeplace@ohiodominican.edu) and initiate a conversation about your writing assignment. You can ask questions about any aspect of your writing assignments and/or submit drafts for feedback. Allow 24-48 hours to receive a response from a writing consultant.

Here’s how to get started:

1. Ask a specific question about the writing process at writeplace@ohiodominican.edu

                - Questions about MLA, APA, or Chicago format, style, and documentation

                - Questions about proper grammar, usage, or punctuation

2. Or, you can also send your draft as an attachment to writeplace@ohiodominican.edu

- Please make sure you attach your draft (do not just copy and paste it into an email)

                - We will accept papers in .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, or .pdf formats (no Pages or .wps files, please)

                - We will not accept links from Google Docs. Please save your file in one of the above formats.

                - We will accept drafts of up to 12 pages. If your paper is longer, for example a                 graduate thesis/final project, please email it to the Write Place Coordinator at WritePlace@ohiodominican.edu 

3. Please make the subject line of your email “ODU Online Writing Center”

4. In the body of the email, please provide all of the following information:

                - Your name, course, and professor

                - A brief description (2-3 sentences) of the assignment in your own words

                - A list of specific questions or concerns that you may have.
