It's Writers' Night at the Library!

Do you need help with your research paper or writing assignment? Are you unsure about the references for your thesis? Do you suffer from writer's block, or maybe you're wondering about how to write "academically"? Or do you simply need some inspiration and a good writing session together with other writers? Welcome to Writers' Night!

Writers' Night at the Library.

Writers' night is open to all students at the University of Oslo, including bachelor-, master- and PhD-students.

At Writers' Night you are welcome to spend time at the University Library until midnight. You can focus on your own writing and write together with others. Writing specialists and peer consultants are available to discuss your writing with you. You can also participate in workshops and listen to lectures to get inspired.

Don't forget a pen, your papers and your computer. If you're staying the whole evening, it is smart to bring food and drink. We will serve coffee, tea and some snacks.
