Writing Center Events
The UNO Writing Center’s Long Night Against Procrastination (LNAP) is held the Friday before finals week. During this themed event, consultants are available to help students with projects and assignments as we would normally in the Writing Center, but with extended hours. LNAP also includes challenges throughout the week of LNAP on our Instagram (@unowritingcenter) and a range of activities and contests during the event. Students may make 30-60 minute appointments during LNAP or drop by the center to ask general questions.
Each May the Writing Center, WID Program, and Center for Faculty Excellence host a week-long faculty writing retreat. Camp Completion is designed to help faculty finish or make significant progress on one or more writing projects. Faculty interested in reserving a spot in Camp Completion should email a brief description of the writing project(s) they will work on, the name and email address of their department chair, and any dietary restrictions to Dr. Adams at email@example.com. Space is limited.
The UNO Writing Center is happy to develop workshops that actively engage student and faculty writers in thinking about or practicing various aspects of the writing process or writing in particular genres or for specific occasions. In the past several years, the Writing Center has facilitated workshops on topics including MLA/APA citation, academic tone, transitions in writing, re-thinking academic introductions, writing literature reviews, writing academic conference proposals, managing faculty feedback, editing your own writing, and approaching big projects, to name a few. Faculty or student groups interested in workshops for specific classes or programs, should email firstname.lastname@example.org Include a brief description of the workshop you would like as well as information about the course/program and students. We will do our best to accomodate your schedule and create something you can make your own for future use.
The Writing Center regularly facilitates writing intensive events for graduate students intended to provide time, space, and support so that students can make progress on the thesis or dissertation. Typically, "boot camps" meet for several days in a row or weekly throughout a semester. Boot camps are made possible by partnerships with UNO Graduate Studies or Graduate Studies at UNMC. If you would like an intensive writing event for students in your department/program, please email email@example.com Include a brief description of your students, dates for the camp, and any questions you have. We will do our best to support your students via a boot camp.
