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.
Who should attend?
All KU graduate students are invited to spend the day writing with us.
What to expect:
Our goal is to offer a pleasant space conducive to clear thinking and effective writing. We offer an environment without distractions, one that will allow you (should you wish) to connect with other graduate students who are committed to their academic and professional writing. Staff from the KU Writing Center and from KU Libraries are also available for on-site consultations and give optional workshops on a variety of subjects.
