Writing regularly helps with productivity and motivation. The Writing and Communication Centre hosts weekly group writing sessions for grad students. These loosely-structured sessions are designed to help grad students connect to a larger writing community, stay focused, and to keep making writing progress.

We break these three hours into 30-minute writing sessions divided by 5-minute breaks, following the Pomodoro Technique. This technique has lots of benefits. Check it out (PDF)!

We’ll provide free coffee, tea, and snacks. Just come and write!
