Write Here, Right Now

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 or edit your writing. View our Mission and Diversity Statements, or read our 2013-2014 Annual Report (pdf).

Meet the writer: Charlesia McKinney. Graduate student at KU, pursuing an MA in rhetoric and composition, focusing on cultural rhetoric, feminist rhetoric, and afrocentric pedadogy. KU Writing Center consultant. “If I could give a piece of advice to a large group of people, I would ask this question: ‘Are you doing something in your life today that would have an impact 3,000 years from now?’ In many ways, I think we should live that way: that we should have a focus beyond our lifetime or even the next, but on what matters for many years to come.” Want to hear more from Charlesia?
