UHall and Brittany Write-Ins

Calling All in UHall & Brittany!  Need help with your writing?  The Writing Affiliates are here to help! Come to our Write-In’s this Sunday, November 13th, 8-10 pm.  We’ll help you get moving again, on any writing project, at any stage in your process.teacher-toolkit

What is a write-in? A write-in is an intentional time and space for writing, particularly writing that you may be avoiding or procrastinating on–it’s that simple. In a space like a study or TV lounge, within an NYU dorm, around the time of most classes’ essay deadlines, we gather to work on our essays or other writing projects in real time.

How is it different from a class? Well, for one, it’s in your dorm! No “participation” is necessary–other than your presence in the room and your willingness to get some writing done. Reflecting on the write-ins, one student said: “It’s not a class or a workshop; it’s more like a grown-up version of study hall…with cookies or pizza!” And another said: “Makes writing less lonely and boring. I got great feedback on my essay and wound up with a decent grade.”

How can this help me and why should I sign up? In addition to finding delicious refreshments and camaraderie, all in a supportive, positive environment, our write-ins often provide some opportunity for students to get some quick feedback from the Writing Affiliates themselves (all NYU Writing the Essay professors), Writing Tutors or Writing Center consultants, and/or peers.

What is a write-in? 3 Questions and Answers

Adapted from an activity started at Swarthmore College, our NYU write-ins provide a space and time for NYU students to work on the art of writing, individually as well as a group. Here are three frequently asked questions about this exciting program:

But also, in the course of our busy lives as students and human beings, sharing our spaces with roommates, pleasurably distracted by friends but stressed-out by all the work we have to do, we struggle to find good spaces where we can write. The Write-in is like a miniature writing retreat within your NYU residence: a getaway from your everyday living/writing space. Your own space within the space, your need for focus and concentration, support and feedback, and good snacks….all are respected here.

Sometimes the most important thing is to have a dedicated time and space for writing–and the motivating sound of other fingers tapping on keyboards.

And who knows? You might find a writing buddy/reader for life.
