Editing & Writing Topics

This forum is for only two things: Your real-life (non-academic) writing needs, or help understanding teacher's comments after you have turned in an essay. We cannot help you review or revise an academic assignment before it is turned in -- your teacher needs to see your work, not ours. Please note that posts cannot be deleted from the writing section. We will not remove texts that have been corrected, so please do not post any personal information in this section, especially in things like letters.
