This was created to help Virginia Tech freshman students and transfer students in the professional writing option at Virginia Tech learn the ropes. However, it can also serve as a guide if you are a prospective student of VT. The professional writing specialization is one of the three available in the English department: creative writing; professional writing; and literature, language, and culture.

Contribute! This is a living document, and if you end up solving a problem within professional writing, then add an article to save the souls of (mostly) innocent freshmen and transfer students. However, this is not the only way to contribute. If you update and validate the info already present, you may also land yourself on your Professional Writing friends’ Christmas list.
