The "Write Time"

 

What is the "Write Time?"

The Graduate School offers the “Write Time,” a scheduled weekly time for graduate students to work on writing projects. The “Write Time” will be offered every Wednesday and Thursday in the Graduate Student Center in Susan Campbell Hall. Drop in any time on:

  • Wednesdays between 8:30am and 12:00pm

  • Thursdays between 8:30am and 11:00am

The “Write Time” combines gentle accountability and peer support in a (quiet) group setting. Whether you are wrangling a thesis, dissertation, article, or proposal, the “Write Time” will help you honor your commitment to write. The “Write Time” is offered twice a week and is designed to help you set aside a specific block of time each week that works with your schedule – you choose when you come and how long you stay. Working on your writing in the presence of other grads working on their projects will provide a supportive environment, as you write, struggle, and – we hope – ultimately triumph in parallel.  By setting aside a regular time and place to write, some of those other grads may become familiar faces – people you don’t want to let down by skipping your “Write Time!”

To help keep your focus during the session, when you sign in, you’ll include your goals for the session, and then when you sign out, you’ll jot down how it went. The “Write Time” is free, and open to ALL graduate students at the University of Oregon.
