Research Guides

Welcome to the research guide for resources related to writing and rhetoric! We all know that writing well takes time, thought, and a lot of practice. Come explore the resources offered here to help you on your way.

Also, as you write...the University of Washington values the writing and research accomplished by its students, and even grants awards to students entering the scholarly conversation. If you are a new undergraduate scholar, check out the Library Research Award for Undergraduates or the Mary Gates Research Scholarship for some exciting funding opportunities!
