What is the Online Writing Commons?

The Online Writing Commons (OWL) is designed to provide RIT undergraduate students with online writing consultations with a trained writing consultant. Similar to its on-campus counterpart, the OWL provides a place for students to engage in synchronous conversations about their individual writing projects. 

Summer 2016

The OWL opens for the summer session on Tuesday, May 31. Undergraduate students enrolled in online courses and/or working on independent studies, capstone projects or theses are eligible to work with an online writing consultant. To set up an appointment, contact Taryn Brennan at

Please note: At this time, the OWL is not open to any RIT graduate students.
