Night Against Procrastination – Virtual Write-In

Got writing deadlines looming? Got essays needing revision? Are you trying to finish your final research project in any CLC class?

Getting writing done can be hard in the best of times.  The Covid-19 pandemic has made it even more challenging to sit down in front of the computer and focus.  We know. 

The CLC Writing Center team is here to help with a two-day Virtual Write-In.

What’s a Write-In? 

A Write-In is a community event where writers join together to get writing done—whether it’s for an hour or two hours or ten—and help to keep each other accountable.  The idea is that when you are working with a group of fellow writers, it is easier to fight procrastination and keep your butt in your chair and your hands on the keyboard. 

We are joining writing centers from across the United States and abroad to offer space and support to encourage writers to tackle (and not procrastinate on) end-of-semester writing projects.   Our virtual CLC Write-In is open to any CLC students, staff, or faculty who want to make progress on a writing task and is being offered over two days.

CLC Writing Center Speaks!

Hey all! The tutors and staff of the CLC Writing Center have decided to create a blog site where we can share helpful resources for writers as well as share information about what we do as tutors in the Writing Center.  We would like this site to be a place where a number of voices can be heard–tutors, writing center staff, and the student writers who work with  us.  We look forward to hearing what you think.
