Online Writing Lab (OWL)

Welcome to Seton Hall’s On-line Writing Lab (OWL), operated by the Seton Hall Writing Center, Department of English. 

Our Mission

The On-line Writing Lab is reserved for those upperclass students, graduate students, and faculty or staff needing writing assistance but cannot come to the Writing Center for a face-to-face appointment. The Writing Center and OWL are not discipline-specific; we welcome writers from any field, major, or department.  Furthermore, we assist with writing that is connected with other endeavors besides strictly academic programs – that is, resumes, cover letters, statements for scholarship applications, writing samples, journals, portfolio preparation and so on.

How to Enter the Lab
