What's New

Pearson Writer's 7.0 release includes the addition of MLA 8, the Modern Language Association's newest set of guidelines. The Pearson Writer app will now offer MLA 8 as the default citation style for all new projects created and students will now be able to update projects to MLA 8, and search for and add citations to their bibliography in this format.

App Description

Papers don’t write themselves.
But Pearson Writer makes it easier with writing and research support — whenever, wherever you need it.
Get the free app as a part of your Pearson Writer subscription to manage your writing and research anywhere you go.

Pearson Writer makes it easy to stay organized, track tasks, and stay on top of all your writing and research projects. You can set milestones prior to the due date, set up notifications to prevent procrastinating, and make sure you have enough time to do quality work.

Writing, Grammar, and Research Guide is your go-to resource any time you have a question or need help.

Automatic Writing Review (available on tablets or laptops) helps you check your paper for possible spelling, grammar, and style errors while offering grammar lessons and suggestions for revising and editing.

Research Database makes searching for and managing source materials easier.

NEW! NoteClipper enables you to clip sources easily from the web.
Citation Generator takes care of tracking and formatting all of your sources. It keeps track of every source throughout your research and builds your bibliography in the background.

Notebook allows you to organize your notes visually, link each note to sources, and generate an outline.

Project Manager and Notebook together help you stay on top of multiple projects and make organizing your ideas and your sources less cumbersome.
