In The Spotlight
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.
