Wednesday, December 7th, the Writing Center at Middlebury College will join over 90 other colleges and universities from around the globe in sponsoring a Write-In between the weeks of November 25-December 9. Supported by Center for Teaching, Learning & Research, the Writing Program, the Library, and the Anderson Freeman Center, the Write-In fosters a writing community by setting aside time and space from 8-11 pm in LIB 201, LIB 225D (quiet space) and from 8:30 pm-11:00 pm at the Anderson Freeman Center for students to write together. A Peer Writing Tutor and a Research Librarian will be on hand in LIB 201; two Peer Writing Tutors and a Research Librarian will be in the Anderson Freeman Center, and an additional Peer Writing Tutor will be available in the CTLR (LIB 225). During the Write-In, students may work on academic papers, do personal writing, or brainstorm writing for fellowships, internships, and jobs. We’ll provide snacks and prizes.
