Help with Writing

There are many good sources for assistance with writing, but I want to call attention to two.

First, there is the Writing Center at the U of MN. "Student Writing Support provides free writing instruction for all University of Minnesota students -- graduate and undergraduate -- at all stages of the writing process." Take advantage of working with the Writing Center to polish your papers.
Here is the link.

I have also become aware of a professional writing service that seems to specialize in working with people for whom English is not their first language. This is a commercial service; I have not used it, nor can I attest to its effectiveness. But a colleague who edits a journal mentioned it to me. It is called Professional Writing Services, and here is the link. Again, this mention should not be viewed as an endorsement - I have simply noted that it might be a possible resource.
