The W.R.I.T.E. Collection is curated to support and inspire students as thinkers, researchers, and writers.

W.R.I.T.E Collection

For students who are new to research and academic writing, there are various books that provide foundational knowledge and skills. Bilingual and multi-lingual students will find books that speak to their cultural and language background. Science students will find books that will help them with scientific writing to communicate research and discoveries.

Books on the art and craft of writing will benefit students in every academic discipline. A Poetry Handbook by Mary Oliver heightens our awareness of words and their music, meaning, and associations. William Zinsser's On Writing Well imparts writing lessons with lively stories and great humor. Brenda Ueland ignites our passion for writing in her timeless classic, If You Want to Write: A book about Art, Independence, and Spirit. 

The collection also offers fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays, interviews, and other genres by writers from around the world. You can browse books before, during, and after Writing Center hours. If you are hooked by a book, check it out at the Circulation Desk. 

You are welcome to suggest a book to add to this collection at LibraryAnswers.
