Online Writing Lab (OWL)

Note: OWL is closed for the Summer and will reopen Fall 2020.
Check out the UAA Learning Center for Summer writing assistance. 


About the Online Writing Lab

The OWL website is part of KRC’s Learning Center. The OWL is staffed by KPC faculty and student tutors. This website addresses issues related to writing: the writing process, essay format, paragraph development, documentation, grammar, and basic writing tips. This site provides students with the opportunity to have a conversation with a trained tutor about their written work. Students will receive feedback containing practical suggestions for revising their paper.

However, it should be noted that OWL tutors will not revise students' papers for them. Tutors will give helpful suggestions and may refer students to resources. Since each individual student is the author of their own paper, they may or may not choose to take the suggestions submitted by the writing tutor. Sessions are meant to be a dialogue about your written work.

Submit a request

Students who have questions about writing a paper, would like feedback on their work, or are unsure of grammar, are encouraged to submit a question or a sample of their work to the OWL.

KPC Writing Lab Tutor Mike Morgan is available for phone and/or FaceTime consultations to assist with writing assignments. To schedule an appointment, call 239.537.7874.
