The Writers’ Center Offers New Online Resources

The Writers’ Center is excited to announce the launch of Tips for EWU Writers, an online resource we designed for Eastern students. These pages offer ideas and strategies for a variety of writing topics. Check them out at and let us know what else you’d like to see!

The Writing Process

These pages give suggestions for different parts of the writing process, from idea generating to revising. The writing process isn’t always linear, so jump in wherever you are.

Grammar and Style

Get help with some of the main grammar and style topics that come up in academic writing: articles, run-ons, formal writing, subject-verb agreement, and more.


Everyone’s favorite! Click here for the basics of APA and MLA (more documentation styles to come).

Applying for a job, scholarship, or school? Here are some tips and samples to help you stand out from the rest.

Learn about creative writing topics from our own creative writers.

Design Principles

Brought to you by the Multi-Media Commons and the Writers’ Center, here are some principles for good design that can be applied to posters, PowerPoints, brochures, and more.

Writing the Literature Review

Based on a popular workshop the Writers’ Center offers, this page provides helpful writing strategies for the literature review, a piece of writing that is common in the research process of many disciplines.

In addition to Tips for EWU Writers, we continue to offer one-on-one appointments in person and on Skype for writers working on any kind of writing: academic essays, resumes, short stories, posters, PowerPoints, and more. Fall quarter is traditionally our busiest time, so if you want to meet with one of our professional Responders for feedback on your project, sign up now at
