Around this time of the year, college students may find themselves staring blankly into a screen as they face any number of daunting writing assignments. Fortunately, there are two fine online resources that may aid them in this process. The first is offered by the Princeton Writing Center, and it contains a number of helpful essays on how to find and develop a paper topic, dealing with writing anxiety, and preparing to perform well on essay exams. The next site is the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University, which has been in existence since 1995. Here, visitors can find a number of excellent writing guides and related material, including The Writing Lab Newsletter, which brings together helpful information about tutoring theory, methodology, and training writing tutors. Of course, visitors should not be surprised to learn that the site also contains a substantial number of documents on grammar, mechanics, literary analysis, and writing in the social sciences. Taken together, these two sites represent a mighty contribution to those seeking to learn how to compose better essays and papers, and also for those working with such individuals.
