Because most of these services in the United States and Canada are staffed by colleges and universities, many close or have reduced hours during college breaks. Only those that indicate they accept collect calls do.
You can use any of the services listed in this directory by calling the hotline and asking your grammar questions. The universities, colleges, organizations, or people sponsoring the hotlines and their phone numbers are all provided for your convenience. Also included are fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and Web sites, where available. The zip codes following the city locations of each hotline are given in case you wish to ask your questions in writing. The list is organized alphabetically by states where the Grammar Hotlines are located.
