International Write-In at Love

Writers (and UNL Students) don’t have to write alone at the International Write-In on Dec. 6 from 6-10 pm at Love Library

You are invited to bring any project to the library and work alongside other writers. Free snacks, games, and other de-stressing activities will be on hand. Writing Center Consultants will be available throughout the event to answer questions, help writers get past writer’s block, or join in a quick game. 

The event is free and open to all members of the UNL community. UNL will join at least 73 other schools across the country holding similar events in early December that will bring writers together.  Event hosted by the UNL Writing Center and UNL Libraries.
