Campus Writing Center

The Campus Writing Center serves the entire academic community as a resource for all writing at Illinois College. Located in Kirby 104 (off the Rotunda), the CWC is staffed by student and faculty consultants more than forty hours per week. You can drop in or make an appointment. Students of every major who are excellent writers may take the opportunity to apply to become a consultant. Students who work in the center begin as apprentices, advance to consultants, and may be invited to join the leadership team in the center.

As part of a liberal arts college, the Campus Writing Center strives to help members of the college community as they practice and refine written communication for different purposes, audiences, and contexts. The Campus Writing Center exists to provide feedback and help in effective expository and creative writing to all members of the Illinois College community in every discipline, but especially to students. It offers consultation on writing assignments, pedagogy, and evaluation to faculty members. The Center also promotes the aesthetic appreciation of writing as a worthy and personally rewarding intellectual and artistic endeavor, for example by offering special writing events and an annual conference.

Established in the fall of 1995 by the English Department, the Campus Writing Center is now an independent unit of the Illinois College campus. For additional information about the Campus Writing Center, please visit the Campus Writing Center's website or email the director at
