Caution: Thesis Writing in Process

Weekly Thesis Write-In

8:00 pm - 11:00 pm Frost Library, Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd fl.)

Thesis writers, set yourself up to succeed this year by joining fellow students to write together regularly. Research and experience show us that most of us write more productively when we commit to a regular writing schedule and when we write among others. Find motivation and support among fellow thesis writers at the Weekly Thesis Write-in. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Sponsored by the Writing Center and Library.

Calvin & Hobbes

Amherst Write-In

There’s no need to toil away in isolation when everyone has papers to write! Spend the first day of reading period in a supportive, quiet environment to make some progress on those final projects. We'll provide snacks, coffee and break activities, and writing center associates and librarians will be available during the day for drop-in consultation.
