Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Join us on Fridays (9:30 - 1:00) and Saturdays (10:00 - 1:30), beginning on Saturday, September 9, for a morning of writing. Graduate students gather in Fenwick Library 3001, bringing their coffee, laptop, a set of goals, and a commitment to arrive on time and stay for the entire session. We begin with a short conversation about goals and end with a short wrap-up on accomplishments. The remaining time is dedicated to writing. A Writing Center consultant is on site to coordinate the session and take consultations.

If you're looking for group accountability and a space to write with other Mason graduate students who are also serious about making progress on their writing goals, sign up for any number of sessions between one and twenty-four. You may schedule just one or two sessions to get started on a course project, or attend all twenty-four to give yourself regular, structured time to work on a thesis, dissertation, or other writing project.

If you register for a write-in, you are committing to

  • Arrive on time and to stay for the duration
  • Turn off access to Facebook, online games, and other computer/online-based distractions during writing time
  • Minimize distractions by phone by limiting texting and phone calls to scheduled break times
  • Contribute to a supportive writing community among fellow participants

Seating is limited, so please register ahead of time. You may cancel up to 2 hours before a session.

To sign up for a Fairfax campus write-in, just register here for the dates you'd like. Please call 703-993-8359 or email Andrew Cartwright at acartwr4@masonlive.gmu.edu with questions.
