Conquer writer's block and feel better heading into your weekend! 

Write-ins provide dedicated stretches of time each Friday for NPS students to concentrate and make real progress on a paper or thesis. Work alongside other writers and encourage each other as you set and meet your writing goals.

GWC writing coaches and DKL librarians are on hand to answer writing or research questions on the spot.

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.”

“Library and writing resources are second to none!”

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