The Richard Wright Center for Writing, Rhetoric, and Research


Are you working on a paper, presentation, or a research project? Do you need support with your writing? Welcome! You’re in the “write” place!

In the Richard Wright Center (RWC), undergraduate and graduate writing advisers will talk with you about your writing, give feedback, and answer your questions. 

Talking with a writing adviser about your writing, speaking, or research project can help you develop your ideas, understand your readers’ expectations, and build your confidence as a writer. 

Meet with a writing adviser to discuss the following:

  • planning and organizing your work on a project or assignment
  • overcoming writer’s block
  • revising and editing strategies
  • organization and supporting evidence
  • resources and reference materials
  • creating visual aids for presentations
  • using documentation styles (e.g., MLA, APA, Chicago) 
                         and more . . .

To work one-on-one with a writing adviser, make an appointment.
