Graduate Writing Specialist
Fall 2017 Office Hours: Tues/Thurs by appointment
The KU Writing Center's Graduate Writing Specialist, Dr. Claire McMurray, works exclusively with graduate students to help them learn how to improve their graduate-level writing. Dr. McMurray will hold office hours for graduate students whose needs go beyond the Writing Center's traditional graduate writing consultations. She has several areas of expertise: adjusting to graduate-level writing, overcoming writer's block, publishing journal articles, writing grant/fellowship applications, and completing academic job applications. In addition, she can provide writing coaching, which can be particularly helpful for those in the thesis/dissertation writing process.
How to make an appointment: Email the Writing Center to request a one-hour appointment with Dr. McMurray. She is available for phone/video calls on Mondays (9:30am-1:30pm) and for face-to-face meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays (8am-4pm). In your email include your preferred day/time, field of study, and a brief summary of your needs.
