5th Annual Month of Writing

Although we are in mid-November (or NANOWRIMO for all you  aspiring novelists), the memory of the Month of Writing (MOW) is still fresh. Just this morning, I was editing the manuscript I created during MOW.

To remind yourself of all of the things we did last month, read this article.

Finals Week at the Writing Center

Finals are upon us, and the University Center for Writing-based Learning will be open Wednesday through Friday this week to assist students with end-of-term work.

The UCWbL has Writing Center locations in both Lincoln Park and the Loop, and both locations have finals week hours between 10-5 from Wednesday, the 16th, through Friday, the 18th.

While the schedule is already filling up, cancellations may be available. Visit WCOnline (register if you don't have an account), and click on the clock symbol next to the date that you'd prefer to be added to their waitlist. Be sure to select the correct campus from the drop-down menu (Loop AQ Finals 2016 in the example below).

The Chat With a Tutor function on the UCWbL website (located on the bottom of the page) may also be of use to students with quick questions during business hours.

Best wishes to everyone in the weeks ahead!
