YGSE Writing Group

Tired of working on your papers, presentations, lit reviews, applications, thesis, dissertation, or book alone? Need the motivation of others working around you to stay on track? Wish there were more opportunities to develop a community within the Faculty of Education? Come write with company every Wednesday afternoon.

YGSE Writing Group follows Shut Up and Write!’s format designed to help writers develop a creative community, enjoy some companionship, and do some serious writing. It provides graduate students and postdocs support while working on their writing projects. YGSE Writing Group is a regular get-together where you prioritize writing over everything else (e.g. no email, no Instagram, no texting). It’s an opportunity to establish a writing routine, do some intensive work, and break through blocks in a supportive atmosphere using the Pomodoro Technique. Each Pomodoro includes 25 minutes of intensive writing plus a 5-minute break.


Each Writing Session includes:

·      10 minutes introduction and chat
·      2-3 Pomodoro Rounds
·      30 minutes to talk writing, trade productivity tips, and get to know each other’s work
On occasion, scholarly guests may drop by to share strategies and take questions.
