Graduate 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, ample time, and light snacks and coffee to fuel your work in the Watson Library Graduate Student Study Lounge (4th Floor)! 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.

A Typical Write-In Day

You can arrive anytime between 10am and 2pm to join us for writing time and/or short, writing/research consultations! Each week we will also have special Lunch and Learn sessions or KU Library Workshops. For a full schedule of events, check out the Library's Page.

Virtual Write-in

You can join us any time between 10am-2pm each Friday for the Virtual Write-in! This is a great option if you still want the accountability, but can't make it to campus. Facilitators will ask virtual participants to set goals for the session, post updates, and check-in with the group periodically. Please register with your KU Email and Student ID. All KU Graduate Students are welcome to attend the Virtual Write-in.
