Create. Compose. Communicate.

Welcome to the KU Writing Center

Writers need feedback, sounding boards, and other people to coach and guide them while they compose. That's where the KU Writing Center comes in. It's a place for productive talk about writing, with trained peer consultants to help you brainstorm, draft, and revise your writing. View our Mission and Diversity Statements, or read our 2014-2015 Annual Report (pdf).
