Outreach through The Writing Center @ MSU exists to establish and sustain relationships with surrounding communities to celebrate and advance writing and literacy through workshops, events, groups, presentations, and activities. Our outreach initiatives strive to continue the Writing Center’s philosophy.

We believe outreach is important because it extends the physical boundaries of the Writing Center to create opportunities for Writing Center faculty, staff, and students, as well as other members of the MSU community, to establish and sustain relationships with surrounding off-campus communities. The off-campus communities we primarily work with are schools, non-profits, libraries, and community centers. We mostly work with underserved and underprivileged communities and individuals by organizing workshops, events, groups, presentations, and other activities to celebrate and engage with the work of writing and literacy. Generally, the initiative also looks to explore the ideas of what it means to teach and learn writing and how places and spaces generate or limit teaching and learning writing.

We also partner with other departments and programs on campus to reach the community. Ultimately, we are willing to work with anyone who is interested in writing and literacy.
