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).


All roosts will close Wed. Nov. 26th and reopen Mon. Dec. 1st in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
