Description

**If registering for a session, please select "1" to secure your spot (the numbers do not indicate number of days). Thank you!**

The MindCORE Writing Room offers our faculty and affiliates dedicated space, time, and structure for high-productivity work.

Inspired by the Graduate Student Center’s Dissertation Bootcamp, the MindCORE Writing Room utilizes behavioral change research done by Angela Duckworth, Katherine Milkman, and others to facilitate a space of accountability for long-term writing and work projects.

The Structure

For each month-long session, the MindCORE Writing Room will be open every Friday with coffee, drinks, and light snacks. Participants may sign up for one or multiple monthly sessions; however, you must commit to attending all four days of each monthly session to sign up.

The core hours for each day are 9am-12pm, with additional times at 8-9am and 12-2pm for optional use. Each participant will be asked to sign a Commitment Contract pledging to attend their chosen dates as well as choose from the commitment devices provided. The rules of the space include no cell phones, no social media, and no talking beyond low volumes when necessary.

Fall 2019 Sessions: Fridays

SESSION 1: September 6th – 27th
SESSION 2: October 4th – 25th
SESSION 3: November 1st – 22nd

The deadline to sign up for Session 1 will be Friday August 30th

Due to limited capacity, we will cap the number of participants & maintain a waitlist. Any questions or comments can be directed to Michelle Johnson (michellj@sas.upenn.edu).
