We organised digital Writing Nights in 2021 and 2022 because of the coronavirus. Platforms like wonder.me or gather.town brought students closer together and created the feeling of interacting on a personal basis in times of social distancing.

Just like any other Night, we offered mini workshops, answered individual questions regarding the different phases of the writing process, and supported you when it comes to technical problems and formatting difficulties. We also offered short yoga or breathing breaks when relaxation was needed. Those having attended without a specific writing project profit from the productive and motivating atmosphere in order to plan new projects or to learn.
