Grad Writing Room

Writing Room

Monday-Friday (Weeks 1-10), 9:00-11:00am

The Writing Room is a minimally structured, daily service for graduate students. The aim of the Writing Room is to give you time and space to "get away" and work on your writing project, in the quiet company of other graduate students and scholars. 

Plus, there's free coffee!

How it Works: 

  1. A Graduate Writing Consultant sets up the room and is present for the duration of the writing time.
  2. When you arrive, you will be asked to set a writing goal or intention for the time you are there. You'll write down your goal on a sticky note and stick it to the main board. 
  3. After you set your goal, get some coffee and get to work. 
  4. During the writing time, you can ask the Graduate Writing Consultant facilitator for a short writing consultation. The facilitator can help you work through a stuck point, check the clarity of what you've written so far, or talk with you about your writing process. 
  5. Towards the end of the writing time, the Graduate Writing Consultant will check in with you about your writing goal, and talk with you about potentially useful writing strategies.
  6. By 11:00am, you'll have made progress on your project and can go about the rest of your day!

There's no RSVP or commitment required for the Writing Room, just come and work!
