Watson Library to host Graduate Research and Write-In

Friday, March 28, 2014

KU Libraries, in collaboration with the Graduate Writing Program and the KU Writing Center, will host a Graduate Research and Write-In on April 5.

“The goal of the daylong event is to provide a pleasant space that encourages clear thinking and effective writing, as well as connections with other graduate students who are committed to their academic and professional writing,” said Scott McEathron, head of the Center for Graduate Student Initiatives and Engagement.

Graduate students will have the opportunity to work on individual writing projects as well as receive research assistance, on-site consultation and optional workshops from KU Libraries, Graduate Writing Program and Writing Center staff. Writing specialists will offer assistance with a variety of graduate writing tasks including dissertation writing, editing work for publication and preparing fellowship applications.

The write-in begins at 10 am, and all graduate students are encouraged to attend. For details and registration information, visit the Writing Center site.
