  • The Writing Center and the Goals of Writing Conferences

    The Writing Center of Eastern Illinois University is a place where students can develop as independent writers and thinkers. We recognize that student writers come to the center with individual needs and individual writing processes, and we are committed to helping students from all disciplines, majors, and academic backgrounds at any stage of the writing process.

    Writing Center consultants work with writers on a number of important tasks, such as these:
    • Understanding and analyzing writing assignments
    • Moving past writer’s block
    • Brainstorming topics and ideas
    • Revising for stronger content and adapting to audience
    • Developing focus and thesis statements
    • Organizing ideas and support
    • Developing evidence, examples, and supporting details
    • Revising for stronger development of and work with source materials
    • Guiding writers to effectively integrate source materials
    • Providing guidance on using citation systems
    • Offering assistance on how to effectively and ethically summarize, paraphrase, and quote source materials
    • Implementing strategies for strong paragraphing
