Writing Guides

These quick reference guides are designed to give students easy-to-use guides to common issues in academic writing. In addition to the PDFs below, the guides are available as hardcopies at both Writing Studio locations during our regular hours. If you don't see a topic you need below, let us know. We want to make sure we cover all the issues you encounter in your writing, both personal and academic.

In addition to the guides provided by the Writing Studio, the UMKC libraries have handouts that cover a broad range of topics (from business to medicine to music and communication studies). To browse through these handouts and guides written by various university librarians, visit http://libguides.library.umkc.edu/index.php.
