Weekly Write-Ins for Graduate Students

Writers gather in Study Room #329, 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.

Registration has closed.

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. You may wish to attend once or twice to get started on a course project, or attend every week 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, but walk-ins are also welcome.
