This fall the CLC Writing Center once again held our Night Against Procrastination Write-In event online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  The event spanned two nights, Wednesday, December 2, 2020 and Thursday, December 3, 2020 going from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm each night. 

This time, we focused heavily on the “write-in” aspect, students committing to spend a certain amount of time writing, and referred writers who needed assistance directly to the writing center, which thanks to extended hours, was also open until 10:00 pm.

The event was a rousing success—we had 36 writers spend over 100 hours writing.  Thirty-one of them were students and the other five were faculty and staff. We had 20 participants on Wednesday and 23 on Thursday and seven writers (6 students and 1 faculty member) attended both nights.  Two writers worked the full 10 hours of the event.
