Graduate Writing Specialist

Spring 2018 Office Hours: Suspended

*Please note: The Graduate Writing Specialist will be out on maternity leave during the Spring 2018 semester. Students will be able to make appointments with her beginning again in June.

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 holds 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.


The KU Writing Center is closed for Spring Break

We will reopen for consultations on Monday, March 26!
