Email

We invite you to contact us at writingcenter@otterbein.edu with short, specific questions about your writing. We’ll respond to you within 48 hours, Monday through Friday. It is important to keep in mind that we cannot read and respond to whole essays sent to us by email. If you would like to discuss an entire essay, we encourage you to schedule an appointment.  Click to request an appointment.

Questions sent by email need to be specific and focused. Examples of questions that we can answer in response to your email:

  • Please take a look at my introduction. Does my thesis seem clear and functional?
  • How do I write a work-cited entry in MLA style for a personal interview?
  • Here is one of my supporting paragraphs. Are my quotations incorporated and my in-text citations correctly formatted in APA style?
  • How do I footnote in Chicago style?
