Get Feedback on Your Writing

What to Expect in a Paper Review

We provide constructive feedback on topics like:

  • Clarity
  • Organization and paragraphing
  • Effective integration of evidence
  • Cohesion and flow
  • Scholarly voice and grammar
  • APA style

We typically focus on just a few topics or patterns to provide a helpful and manageable quantity of feedback.

Paper Reviews ARE

  • Individualized feedback from a writing professional
  • For students working on coursework including discussion posts, course papers, master’s capstones, and the doctoral premise and prospectus
  • Focused on skill building and instruction based on patterns in a student’s draft
  • Asynchronous: There is no phone call or online meeting time
  • An optional, supplementary service available to Walden University students at no additional cost

Paper Reviews ARE NOT

  • For proofreading or editing (try Grammarly and these Proofreading Strategies)
  • For specific writing or APA questions; for those, you can Ask OASIS
  • For students working on doctoral capstone drafts beyond the prospectus
  • Connected to a university approval process

What Students Are Saying About Paper Reviews

“The [Writing Support team] is one of the most important resources at Walden University and I probably would not be passing my classes without their assistance, even though I had considered myself a proficient writer before attending Walden.  Every single person who has reviewed my papers is always professional and provides excellent advice while encouraging my writing to continue.”
– Walden Bachelor’s Student

“Having another set of eyes read my paper and notice things that I missed is very helpful. I am glad for her skills in reviewing my paper.”

“The feedback made me more aware of how I can strengthen my writing. Also, it really helped with the resources and in-text cites.”
