Write-In Overview

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. You will find community with other KU graduate students, and Writing Center Staff from the KU Writing Center, KU Libraries, and the Graduate Writing Program will be available with lots of positive energy to support your writing efforts.

Who should attend?

All KU graduate students, faculty, and staff 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.
