The Writers' Center, located in the EWU-Cheney John F. Kennedy Library Learning Commons and the EWU-Spokane Center, is a free service open to all writers across the EWU community: Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome. Over 90% of students report improved writing after visiting the Center. The Writers' Center staff, known as Responders, are experienced, professional writers equipped to work with writers of any ability and from any discipline, including Business, Social Work, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering, English, and more.

Writers' Center Responders collaborate with writers at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to polishing final drafts. Writers are encouraged to bring all types of writing or specialized communication formats, both course related and personal, including:

  • Academic Essays

  • Research Projects

  • Posters, Presentations & Speeches

  • Multimedia Projects

  • Scholarships & Resumes

  • Creative Writing

During a 50-minute session, Responders and writers work together to create an individualized experience, which emphasizes the writer's needs and goals. These conversations are intended to help writers with their current projects and to develop long-term critical thinking and writing skills. While Responders will not edit work for writers, they will discuss strategies and techniques to help writers revise their own work.   In addition to individual face-to-face sessions, the Writers' Center offers Skype and Online Response sessions, and group sessions and workshops tailored to faculty and student needs.
