What is the laboratory? This laboratory is an online resource, a self-driven interactive project in which participants will have access to writing consultations, proof reading as well as editing services. Premium services include graphic design (including layouts for magazines, books, and flyers), printing services, as well as promotional packages. All of the services are available online and in person.

Who benefits from these services? Emerging authors, grant writers, veteran poets, event organizers, bloggers, and students all benefit from a second set of eyes reviewing their written work. An objective reader can provide feedback on the composition’s clarity; identify mechanical issues (syntax & grammar); and highlight well structured passages.

How can I access these services? To register for the writing laboratory, please complete the contact form below, you will be contacted shortly.

*NOTE* For special request (informational pamphlets, flyers, posters) please email MichaelRay@LoraxCommunity.org, with “WRITING LAB SERVICE PROPOSAL” as your subject line.
