Quick Queries

For brief questions about punctuation, grammar rules, and documentation, you can now email the Writing Center. Include Quick Query in your subject line, so we can get to it quickly! Here are some examples of specific questions:

Is this a run-on sentence?

Is this a correct Works Cited entry?

Do titles of books go in quotation marks?

Please include your name in your email. For some questions, it will be helpful for us to know which course you are in, what kind of paper you are writing, and what documentation style you are using. Please include any information you think we will find helpful. We will try to respond as soon as possible during our working hours.

Quick Query is best suited for brief questions.  For in-depth consultations, schedule an appointment by stopping by the Writing Center, calling 815-224-0637, or using our online form.
