Dear XXXXX,
When making your appointment with the KU Writing Center, we
noticed your course number was an AEC course lower than 100.
Unfortunately, we only serve students in advanced AEC courses
(>100).
Fortunately, the AEC has provided you with an excellent tutoring
resource, the Point. Please access information about this service at
http://www.aec.ku.edu/point.

Write with us,


again

Dear KU Writing Center Alumni,


You are no longer with us, but your legacy lives on. O.K., too corny
(or maybe too morbid?), but I hope you get the point: Every
graduating consultant and office assistant has contributed
something to the KU Writing Center as it is today, and everyone
who works here now is building the Writing Center of tomorrow.
But you can continue to influence the trajectory of this
organization by reconnecting with us! Twenty-eight of you have
already done this by participating in the research project led by
our Assistant Director, Moira Ozias. Through survey responses and
interviews, you have let us know how working at the Writing
Center contributed to your student experience at KU and beyond,
as professionals and community members. Results of this alumni
research project have already informed how we prepare new
consultants and continue to educate the ones who continue
working here as they contribute to their own and other writers
learning in the Writing Center.
Now there is another simple way you can give back: Send us
information about you for our new website spotlight, Where Are

Questions

Dear XXXXX,
Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, formatting for theses
and dissertations is not something that falls under the domain of
the KU Writing Center. However, KU Libraries has some great
resources to help you with this.
Please go to http://guides.lib.ku.edu/etd to find electronic
resources and a list of formatting workshops at Lawrence and
Edwards campuses as well as times for "format and submit open
lab hours." Open hours and workshops are held regularly.
Best wishes,

Becoming a
Writing
Consultant

Dear, XXXXX.
I am glad to hear you are interested in peer writing consulting. All
of our consultants have experience with peer writing consulting
before they are interviewed and hired at the KU Writing Center.
While some come to KU with that experience, most do not.
Students who do not have previous experience working in a writing
center take a course called Teaching and Tutoring Writing
(LA&S/ENGL 400). The course, now offered both Fall and Spring
semesters, includes observations and an internship in the writing
center. You can find out more about the class
at http://www.writing.ku.edu/~writing/about/becoming_a_co
