FYI: New Academic Writing App from the University College London
Please find below an announcement for a new app aimed at helping your students with their essays and other writing assignments. We hope you will bring it to their attention. It is not a substitute for mentoring, but it is an additional source of advice, available 'on the go'. We would be grateful if you could encourage your students to use it. .
Feedback on the app is very welcome. Apologies for cross-posting.
