The Writing Center invites students to our fall Write-In on December 7th.

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. See: for more information about this global event.  #IntlWriteIn

 Why come to a Write-In?

Writing can be lonely, solitary work. Joining a group of other student writers can be motivating, productive, and calming.

 How will this work?

Come to Davis Family Library 201 any time between 8-11 PM or to the AFC between 8:30-11:00. Stay from 15 minutes to 3 hours.

  • Sign in to receive prizes
  • If you want, we’ll give you a pen and a pad.
  • Have some tasty snacks and hot drinks!
  • Meet with a Peer Writing Tutor or Research Librarian.
  • Stay in Lib 201, or in AFC, or go to our reserved quiet space in the CTLR (Lib 225D).

  What kind of writing should I do?

  • Academic writing (Start your end of the semester papers!) (We’ll provide some research tips.)
  • Personal writing (No idea where to start? We’ll provide some writing prompts.)
  • Brainstorm writing for fellowships, internships, and job applications (We have a handy worksheet to get you started.)
