Andrea Lunsford’s smart advice—now with Writer’s Help’s smart search

Writing well is critical to college success. During their years in college, students are asked to write in multiple genres and for a wide range of purposes, audiences, and contexts. They need an easy-to-use resource that can help them find what they’re looking for. Enter Writer’s Help, a powerful online handbook with "the simplicity and usability of Google," according to one student user, but with the instruction that free online resources lack. Its trusted content, from noted composition researcher Andrea Lunsford, helps students whether they are searching for writing advice on their own or working on an assignment. Its tools, built around a smart search that recognizes nonexpert terminology, are as simple as they are innovative. Writer’s Help saves teachers time by helping them assign pages and track progress, providing a window into student use and achievement. User-friendly help for college writers also means useful data for instructors and administrators.

"It's helpful not only for English courses but also for other courses that involve a lot of writing."
—Catina Giammarco, student, University of Delaware
