Writing & Editing

Mizzou communicators show the world what it means to be a Tiger. We tell the stories of the people who pass through the columns at Tiger Walk, who flock to campus each year for Homecoming and who become part of the Mizzou legacy. We announce research breakthroughs and sports victories. We share student accomplishments and academic opportunities.

Writers and editors in the Division of¬†Marketing & Communications generate content for major periodicals, websites and marketing publications produced by Mizzou. We maintain the MU Style Guide, every Mizzou writer’s best friend, and we provide editing and consultation for colleagues.
