Graduate Student Research/Write-In scheduled for March 10 at Watson Library

LAWRENCE — University of Kansas graduate students can attend the Graduate Student Research/Write-In this weekend for academic support in a structured setting.

The free writing and research event, organized by the KU Writing Center, KU Libraries, and the Graduate Writing Program, will be 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, March 10, on the fourth floor of the Watson Library.

Several workshops will be held throughout the day: Topic Development, Graduate Research Skills, Endnote Introduction, Pre-writing/Literature Analysis, Writing Literature Reviews, and APA Citation and Style. Students will also be able to see a writing consultant or a subject librarian from their area of study, if they wish. Snacks will be available, courtesy of the KU Libraries.

The first Write-In took place in summer 2008 as a pilot program for the American studies department and was hosted by the KU Writing Center. Later that year it became a regular offering at the Lawrence campus. In 2009 the KU Writing Center, in collaboration with the librarians at the Edwards Campus Regents Center, hosted their first Write-In at the Edwards Campus. In 2010 the KU Writing Center, the KU Libraries and the Graduate Writing Program transformed the Write-In into a Research/Write-In, where students could obtain assistance for their writing and research needs. In 2011, the Edwards Campus Write-In was expanded to offer research assistance and workshops for attendees. Today, there are four Graduate Write-Ins per semester, two at each campus.

Register for any of the three remaining Research/Write-Ins online. Spaces are limited.
