Write-ins

GWC Write-ins


Write-ins are held in the expansive Executive Briefing Center of Herrmann Hall, once Hotel Del Monte's luxurious guest lounge and anteroom. Work alongside peers and encourage each other as you set and meet your writing goals.

Write-ins give NPS students time to concentrate and 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.”

“Library and writing resources are second to none!”

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