    Posting essays

    Hello! I would like to know if it is possible to post an essay to receive comments and corrections. If yes, in which section of the forum can I do that?
    Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum, ponyo.

    Yes, you can. Post them in this section, but please read the blue warning first.

    Forum: Editing & Writing Topics

    This forum is for only two things: Your real-life (non-academic) writing needs, or help understanding teachers' 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.

    Yes, you can do that, but please check your writing for typo errors and others, like capitalizing a proper noun, before you post.

    Yes, you can, but there are no guarantees that everything will be corrected- we're volunteers.

    See above. It's more common to use "Sorry about that ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Posting essays

    It might be helpful to read some of the essays (and the corrections) that have already been posted. In fact, I hope you do.



    There is a lot to look at. Hopefully, you will find it entertaining and educational. (Or the other way around.)
