Long Night of Writing.

Writing during the Silence of the Night.

Have you ever experienced reverse writer’s block, when instead if blanking, everything suddenly becomes clear in your head and you get an overflow of words and ideas? Whether you are in class or writing a major paper, academic writing is part of earning a degree. For this reason, the JKU would like to extend an invitation to all students to attend the Long Night of Writing. You will get a lot of tips and advice to combat writer’s block and get your academic work done! So grab your laptop and secure one of approximately 100 spots for the first Long Night of Writing at the Learning Center!

To join us on-site at the Learning Center, please use the link below to register in advance for the event. You can then select the on-site workshop you would like to attend. If you prefer to take part from home, no problem! All of the workshops will also be streamed live. The Zoom links are available in the respective program points under "Program".
