Write-ins

GWC Write-ins    

This Friday, June 2, join us in the Dudley Knox Library Map Room for writing, coffee, and donuts!


Work alongside peers and encourage each other as you set and meet your writing goals. Relax and concentrate in the Executive Briefing Center (EBC) of Herrmann Hall, once Hotel Del Monte's luxurious guest lounge and anteroom. Joining via Zoom is always an option.


Fridays 1000–1430 Pacific Time

Write-ins give NPS students time to make real progress on a paper or thesis. GWC writing coaches and DKL librarians are on hand to answer writing or research questions on the spot. Conquer writer's block and feel better heading into your weekend! 

No appointment required—come for all or part of the time. See typical schedule below.


 

Students are telling us: Write-ins work!

"Write-ins were single-handedly the best asset I found in my first quarter."

"The write-ins have been instrumental in . . . transitioning from the operating forces to completing academic requirements."

“Library and writing resources are second to none!”

"Write-ins provided motivation to start, continue, and complete my assignments."
