Submit your paper

The Virtual Writing Center is designed as a digital version of our face-to-face Writing Center (in the Howard Colman Library). While we recommend the rich communication of a face-to-face consultation, we realize that some writers find it inconvenient to travel to campus. To learn more about our philosophy and our current hours, visit our Portal page.

Please allow up to 48 hours for us to read and respond to your draft. When we are overwhelmed with face-to-face consultations (especially during midterm and exam times), we may not be able to respond to requests for online draft reviews in a timely fashion.

If you have any problems with this form, send an email with your paper and answers to all of the questions in the form to writingcenter@rockford.edu.

Common problems:

  • You type the wrong email address and thus never get our response.
  • You forget to fill out some of the fields below, giving us few ideas about how we can most help.
  • You expect us to proofread your grammar and mechanics, when that’s not our purpose. See the philosophy statement on our Portal page.
  • You write to us at the last minute and expect an ultra-quick response.
