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).

Important notice: Starting Thursday, Sept. 17, only appointments at 5 p.m. or later will be held in Watson Library. All daytime appointments (graduate and undergraduate) will be held in Anschutz Library (Anschutz 4th floor).

Register for the fall Graduate Research/Write-Ins at the Lawrence campus on Nov. 8 and at Edwards on Oct. 24.
