This is the official website for the TTUHSC Writing Center.  Please read our policies and submission instructions below.

**Important: We take 72 hours to return drafts. You may submit two drafts each week. Please do not submit more than two drafts/week because we have a very small staff.**

**If you have a deadline, please plan to submit 2-3 weeks ahead.**

If your draft is 5+ pages, please consider submitting multiple times (it's free) and tell us (in the online form) the specific page # where you want us to begin reading ("Please read from page xxx to page yyy only."). Our tutors have only 50 minutes to work on each draft, so we cannot read long papers in one session.

Our goal is to teach good writing, not do the writing for you. We do not make edits/changes on clients' drafts using MS Word's tracking function.

For students only: If you need us to inform your professor you visited the Writing Center, please remember to select the option "Notify Instructor" on the "Submit a draft" page. Email writing.center@ttuhsc.edu if you have any questions.

**Website update: If you are asked to "Update your profile" once you log in, please remember to click on "Update" at the bottom of the page. **

Submission instructions:

1. Please have your draft ready to upload as a Word document or a PDF file.

2. Once you log in with your eRaider, click on "Submit a Draft" (top left-hand panel). If you are asked to "Update your Profile," please remember to click on "Update" at the bottom of the page.

3. Please enter all details in the form on the page for "Submit a draft." The mandatory fields have a red asterisk. Then upload: (1) Your draft; (2) if available, the assignment prompt your professor has given you; (3) instructions you may have for us; (3) specific concerns, worries, and fears about your writing.

4. Make sure you hit "Submit for Review" at the bottom of the "Submit a Draft" page or your draft will not show up in our queue.

Please note our policies:

(1) In order to make you a better writer (our goal), we will not edit, proofread, or "check/correct/fix/clean" grammar or APA errors. Instead, we will comment on higher-order writing concerns such as argument, thesis, flow, organization, and transitions. APA is a citation-and-documentation system, not a writing-related issue, and this is for your professor to teach. If you need suggestions on resources on APA, please email: writing.center@ttuhsc.edu

(2) We will need 72 hours to return your work. This does not include holidays and weekends. You will receive an email at your school address with our comments in the form of a memo.
