Who uses the Online Writing Center?

The Online Writing Center is a free service available for Brenau students across campuses. If you cannot make it to the on-ground Writing Center in Gainesville, submit your paper online! Our tutors read papers from across disciplines and are happy to help at any point in the writing process.

Can graduate students use the Online Writing Center?

Yes, they can.  Our Online Writing Center is an option for graduate coursework with papers no longer than approximately 10-15 pages. For thesis or dissertation work, our fee-based Graduate Writing Services would be a better fit for you. (Email Director Emily Smith at with questions about Graduate Writing Services.)

When will I get my paper back?

In most cases, a tutor will return feedback within 1-3 days. For papers longer than ten pages, a tutor will get back to you with an estimate on return time.

How do I review the tutor’s feedback?

The tutor will leave comments with Track Changes in Microsoft Word.

What if I want to submit my paper again after I work on your suggestions?

We’ll be happy to read it! Just make sure to fill out a submission form each time you submit the paper.

Who are your online tutors?

Our online tutors are all Brenau alums with extensive experience in writing. All the tutors worked in the on-ground Writing Center during their time at Brenau.

Why do I need to fill out so many forms?

We need the submission form for record-keeping purposes. It also helps the tutor best to tailor your feedback; the more information you can give, the better the feedback will be.

The evaluation form helps give us an idea of what we’re doing well and what areas we can improve in. Is there anything you’d like to see done differently? Please let us know. We can’t fix things if we don’t know they’re broken!
