Writing is not easy to teach: it is so personal to every student. We want to change the way writing is taught by providing students instructions focusing on the FOUNDATIONS of writing.
How to Read
Learn to engage with the text to improve literary analysis
Make sentenses "pop" using applied grammar
Use logical connections to create unity within paragraphs

The EWC Mission
To change how we learn to write
To write well means to think clearly. At EWC, we believe that the ability to write and think clearly is integral not only to a liberal arts education, but also to our roles in the community at large. Since our inception in January 2020, we have grown to ～800 enrollments from >400 families across 30 states in the U.S. We cannot wait for you to join our community!
Being a good writer serves as the bedrock of being a strong thinker. Our classes focus on LOGIC and formalized thinking. It's about expressing yourself to the community in a CLEAR, organized way.
There IS a science to writing. Yes, you should be creative thinkers, but you need to focus on FUNDAMENTALS first. All our curricula are developed in-house to focus on hammering down your foundations of writing for you to become concise, logical, and creative writers.
Writing needs to be accessible to families everywhere. Every person's writing is unique, and so writing instruction is very personal. Through our many course offerings, we aim at writing courses that match YOUR level at affordable prices and give you the flexibility of studying anytime anywhere.
