iWrite@UPB

The iWrite Project, at the University of Pittsburgh Bradford, is a collaborative body working to re-vision composing, reading, teaching, learning, producing, and consuming.  We focus on textual studies in the areas of rhetoric and composition, literacy studies, literary theory, digital studies, mass media, and social theory. The iWrite Project promotes multimodal textual construction and deconstruction at Pitt-Bradford through workshops; Writing Center support; and classroom-based composition assignments in courses such as The Web in Social Contexts, English Capstone, Critical Methods, Technical Writing, and Business Writing for the 21st Century. 
iWrite@UPB works in collaboration with the Division of Communication and the Arts, the Writing Center, and the office of Academic Technology Integration. If you would like to get involved in the iWrite Project, please contact Dr. Jessie Blackburn at jbb35@pitt.edu.
