Writing @ Brandeis

students in library

We are all writers @ Brandeis – students, staff, and faculty. Writing @ Brandeis is a resource to support us as we strive to become even more effective writers. Some of us produce writing that is predominantly analytical, others, entirely creative; sometimes we blend both. Genres as diverse as the re-tweet and the Shakespearean sonnet share one thing in common: they are forms of writing developed for communication. Similarly, all writers share one thing in common: we can all develop and improve our writing skills.

Whatever it may be that we write, we want to write it better.
