Welcome to the Richard Wright Writing Center for Writing, Rhetoric, and Research at Jackson State University. Our mission is to provide an environment for intellectual engagement outside the classroom. At any stage of the creative and research processes, students and faculty have the opportunity to interact with trained tutors using technology as they develop written, oral, and visual representations of their ideas for an academic audience.
The Richard Wright Writing Center for Writing, Rhetoric, and Research offers a variety of services to students of all levels and disciplines. Our services include:
- One-on-one writing consultations: Our writing consultants work with students at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming and outlining to revising and editing.
- Workshops and Writing groups: Our workshops and writing groups provide students with the opportunity to learn about different writing strategies and techniques in a supportive and collaborative environment.
- Writing resources: Our website and online resources offer a wealth of information on writing skills and strategies, as well as tips for academic writing, research, and citation.
We invite you to visit our website and explore the many resources and services we offer. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
