There is a common misconception that the Writers' Center is only for struggling writers. We often work with students who are very confident in their writing; we can work together to make sure your work is at its best.
The Writers' Center is the best resource available at EWU! As a graduate student, I am grateful my professor made me aware of the EWU writing center. The Responder (writing consultant) has helped me to focus on writing my thesis during our one-on-one Zoom meetings. The Writers' Center team has also provided outstanding workshops and additional resources that have assisted me in improving my writing skills. My knowledge and confidence have definitely increased. -Janis McClelland
We have professional staff
Our Responders (writing consultants) have MAs or PhDs in various academic disciplines. We understand what it takes to complete a graduate program, and we want to help you on your journey!
You can work one on one with the Responder of your choice. The two of you can build a rapport, work together over the quarter or during your entire program, and they can check in with you regularly. A Responder can be someone to talk to as you work your way through your program.
Grad programs are often a collaborative process and because we are online right now, that can look a bit different. We can set up Zoom appointments to chat about your ideas or help you to talk things out, or we can have a written session where we work on developing your topic.
If you do want to work with your cohort, we would be happy to set up a group Zoom session where we can all talk together.
No assignment is too big or too small
We can help with a smaller assignment, like a discussion board post, or a bigger piece, like your thesis.
We can work with you on your digital presentations: web, video, images, and more. You might need someone to talk to about your assignment before getting started. Maybe you used MLA in your undergrad and are now being asked to use APA; we can help with all of that!
You might have more general questions about research and the overall writing process, so we can provide assistance any stage of the research or writing process.
Don't forget about professional writing
We are also here to collaborate with you on your professional writing: resumes, cover letters, teaching philosophies, internship applications, portfolios, and more!
