If you've ever said, "I wish someone else were available to look at this paper before I hand it in" or "I wonder if my writing will make sense to anyone else," then the Writing Center is for you!
At the Writing Center, writing assistants work with students in a personal, one-on-one environment, helping students improve writing basics such as punctuation, structure, and documenting sources. In addition, they identify areas of strength and weakness, and solve problems with written expression. The goal is to help students improve their writing skills and become more proficient in reviewing and revising their own work.

Traditional Undergraduate Students
In the fall semester, we will be open starting September 6, and traditional undergraduate students can schedule appointments using our online scheduling system. To schedule an appointment, please go to our WCONLINE page. To access the appointment calendar system found here, you will need to first set up an account, using your Eastern email address. Once you have set up an account, you can access the system and can make an appointment by selecting an open time slot on the calendar and completing the information requested. Please note whether the appointment you have selected will be held online or in-person. In-person appointments will be held in Walton 205. Students may schedule one appointment per day and up to three appointments per week.
If you have any questions, please contact John Nordlof, Writing Specialist (firstname.lastname@example.org).

To submit your paper for asynchronous feedback, please email a Word draft to email@example.com and fill out this Google Form. When using this service, please allow a minimum of 48 business hours (not including weekend hours) for the turn-around of an average-sized paper of seven pages or less.
To schedule an appointment via Zoom session, please email the Writing Center at firstname.lastname@example.org and fill out this Google Form. Our appointments are 30 minutes and are by request only during regular office hours, Mon-Fri 8AM-5PM or during our evening office hours, Thursday 7-9PM.
The Writing Center for Graduate and Non-Traditional Undergraduate Students also offers workshops each semester that are not recorded. For our full workshop schedule, please email us at email@example.com.
The Eastern University Writing Center is committed to equipping students with lifelong writing skills and, accordingly, desires to facilitate student learning rather than merely to "edit" student papers. We have a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and compassionate staff who enjoy talking to students about their ideas and writing. In fact, you can visit the Writing Center at any point in your composition process--from brainstorming to documenting sources to final editing!
