Graduate Research/Write-In Overview

Write-ins provide a large block of time during which to focus, relax and get some writing done. Whether you are preparing for your comprehensive exams, writing your dissertation or dissertation prospectus, editing a paper for publication, writing a book review or fellowship application, we invite you to join us. Attendees often appreciate the opportunity to write in a community setting and the energy and helpfulness of staff from the KU Writing Center and KU Libraries.
