What is the turnaround time?
Manuscripts are returned to authors within three weeks, often sooner

What are accepted document formats?
Faculty can submit their work as MS Word or pdf documents

Who are the editors?
Writing Program teaching professors Heather Martin and Brad Benz have edited professionally for years, with dozens of books, articles, and grants in their portfolios

How do I request the service?
