Graduate Writing Specialist
Spring 2019 Office Hours: Mondays/Tuesdays/Thursdays by appointment
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.
Dr. McMurray is available for face-to-face or online appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays (8am-4pm) or for online appointments on Mondays (9:30am-1:30pm). If you wish to make an appointment to meet with the Graduate Writing Specialist, contact the Writing Center's main office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 785-864-2399. Provide your name, contact information, availability, and a brief summary of your needs.
