This guide was created by the Academic Resource Center to help LMU students and faculty have a centralized location for writing resources.  

In the tabs above, you'll find resources to help you become a better writer. Under General Writing, you'll find materials for brainstorming, outlining, revising, etc.  Style and Grammar has helpful guides and activities to practice what you've learned.  Using and Citing Sources is broken down by MLA, APA, and Chicago documentation styles.  Writing in the Disciplines discusses course specific writing conventions.  Finally, Meet with a Tutor will take you to the ARC's homepage where you'll be able to make an appointment for help on your papers.

Below, you'll find a list of upcoming ARC workshops and events that are open to all LMU students.

As with everything in writing, this LibGuide is a work in progress.  Keep your eye out for updates and upcoming workshops!
