This month's spotlight is on Professor Katherine Johnson! 



Promise of a Greater Community

The  Program in Writing and Rhetoric’s    RhetComp  is open to all Stony Brook students interested in writing any genre.  RhetComp  promotes student expression by developing a sense of camaraderie among both Writing minors and students who enjoy writing,  providing an open and positive environment for peer review and critique, and serving as a platform for Stony Brook University students to promote their own writing. In addition,  RhetComp  will teach its members how to improve their writing and editing effectively with a variety of different contests, workshops, and exercises. Our goal is to empower student writers at Stony Brook, and to introduce their work to the larger academic community.
