Writing Guide

Compiled by Villanova Writing Center tutor Valerie Fernandez '03
Updated by Villanova Writing Center tutor Juliana Morro '11

At the Villanova Writing Center, we understand how difficult it can be to write the kind of paper that will get you the grade you desire. By mixing our own thoughts with ideas from University Writing Centers around the country, we've created this comprehensive guide to crafting the college paper.

So that you can be confident of your decisions throughout the writing process, this handout is arranged according to the same step-by-step route that you might follow in your own work.
