About

Das Schreibzentrum der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main bietet Studierenden der Fachbereiche 1 sowie 6 bis 10 Veranstaltungen zum wissenschaftlichen, aber auch zum kreativen und journalistischen Schreiben an. Daneben geben unsere Peer-Tutorinnen in nicht-direktiven Schreibberatungen ein individuelles Feedback auf studentische Schreibprojekte.

Lehrende und NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen können im Schreibzentrum Workshops besuchen, etwa zum Thema schreibintensive Lehre, peer facilitated learning oder (e)Portfolioarbeit, Team-Teachings anfragen oder in Kooperation mit uns individuelle Konzepte für eigene Lehrveranstaltungen entwickeln.

Schulen, Firmen und andere InteressentInnen können sich bei Interesse an schreibdidaktischen Themen gerne jederzeit an uns wenden.

The Writing Center at Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, is dedicated to enhancing the quality of academic writing by offering writing consultations, courses, and workshops for students to help guide them through the academic writing process.   

What is a writing center?

As a writing center, we promote the development of competent academic and professional reading and writing. We consider reading and writing to be both learnable and teachable concepts. Our goal is two-fold: first, we foster students’ acquisition of how to think and write in an academic context; and second, we provide and support teachers with the methods and materials necessary to foster academic writing in their individual courses.

What is academic reading and writing?

Academic reading and writing is the central goal and tool of many academic disciplines. Through this process, writing skills are promoted via discipline-specific content, which is critically discussed and methodologically analyzed to help a student understand the requirements of their chosen field. Academic writing provides constant challenges vis-à-vis the proper use of sources, academic style, the transparent use of reasoning, all the while orienting students in the organization of their own writing process. Knowledge of the academic writing process reassures students that it is completely normal to encounter various difficulties and questions during the reading and writing phase.

What does a writing consultation offer?

Writing consultations offer individual support and direction. Our peer tutors provide students with the opportunity to discuss specific writing projects over the course of their university careers. As writing advisors, peer tutors concentrate on guiding the writing process and structuring a text, not on the specific content that the text seeks to depict. During writing consultations, the following questions are discussed: Does the work present a central thesis or answer defined research questions? Does the author orient the text within discipline-specific existing knowledge? Is the argument clear and convincing? Can the reader follow the text’s logic? Is the text properly formulated for the target audience? These questions direct the students through the writing process and provide helpful feedback along the way.
