Favors Writing Center Handbook

Favors Writing Management is currently revising a past product titled The FAVORS Glossary, which has its own WordPress website and print title. The FAVORS Glossary is a list of popular feedback comments professors write within the margins of student essays. The glossary grows from a primary concern for college students who struggle with the process of revising academic papers and applying margin comments during the revision process.

It serves as a comprehensive solution to help bridge the communication gap between English professors and students of writing and research papers. It answers the question, “What does my professor mean by this?” The main title and related titles are still available for view and purchase on Amazon.com, but these are considered sample copies given the new revision purpose. The titles are undergoing heavy revision.

The accompanying website has changed from www.thefavorsglossary.wordpress.com to www.favorswritingtips.com to www.favorswritingcenter.com. Development of the last website is ongoing. Favors Writing Center will be an online resource for first-year composition instructors and students engaged in the revision planning process.

Favors Writing Center is a product of Favors Learning Center Online Products, a product of Favors Learning Center, which is in development.

The following represents the main title and related titles.
