Online Writing Lab (OWL)

Welcome to the Online Writing Lab!

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) is a free service available to students currently enrolled in courses on any Butler campus or in Butler Online courses.

How Does the OWL Work?

  • The OWL is staffed by English faculty who currently teach Composition and Literature courses.
  • You may submit your papers to us by emailing us at from your Butler email account.
  • When we receive your submission, it will be forwarded to an editor who will respond via email within 48 hours.
  • The editor will give you 5-10 comments with suggestions for how to improve your paper.
