Email a Document: Extended Read Appointments

If you would like a document reviewed, the Norman Writing Center also offers an Extended Read option. These submissions can accommodate up to 3,000 words, or roughly 12 double-spaced pages.
  • Be as thorough as possible when completing the form: Extended Read appointments works best when the writer:
    • is as specific as possible when describing the assignment or project
    • gives detailed information about areas of concern within the project
    • asks specific questions they want the consultant to focus on
  • Submissions are read and returned within 3-5 business days
    • Note: There may be a delay in turn-around time due to the increased volume of submissions. Feel free to call the Norman Writing Center at (405) 325-2936 for a status update.
