The CSUSM Writing Center has embarked on an ongoing project, building an Online Resource Network in order to assist students who need more than a 30-minute session provided in the Writing Center itself. Once reviewing the available materials, if a student needs help with further interpretation, an appointment can be made at the Writing Center with one of our trained tutors.
This is the EDITING AND REVISION portion of the CSUSM WC Resource Site Network.
