Appointments and Services

The Writing Center offers multiple appointment types to meet your individual writing needs, at little to no cost as a student, resident or fellow. The aim of all appointment types is to improve not only the writer’s specific assignment, but also their writing and editing skills more broadly. The writing tutor will focus their feedback on the writer’s expressed problem areas, as well as higher order concerns, including clarity, organization, and tone. All consultations are collaborative, as the writer and tutor work together to find solutions.

Writing Center services are free of charge for KU Medical Center students and residents. Postdoctoral students are required to pay a nominal fee.
