Write-ins - Graduate Writing Center
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.
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!

"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."
