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 2012-2013 Annual Report (pdf).


The Writing Center is now open for the fall semester! However, we will be closed Sunday, August 31st, and Monday, September 1st, for the Labor Day holiday.

The Writing Center now uses iPads for consultations! Since iPads do not have a USB port we ask that you either email the paper to your KU email address, save on Google docs, or print your writing before your appointment. Thanks

Register for the
Graduate Research/Write-In in Lawrence on Sept. 20 and Edwards on Sept. 27.
