This week's write-in is co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life, as a part of Thesis-Dissertation Week. Enjoy free breakfast if you attend this write-in in person!


Mason grad students: Join us either in person or on Zoom on Fridays (9:30 - 1:00), beginning on Friday, Feb. 3 for a morning of writing in a community of like-minded people! Each Friday during the term, graduate students bring a set of goals and a commitment to arrive on time and remain 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 coordinates the session and takes consultations with writers who request them.

If you're looking for group accountability and regular time 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 fifteen. You may schedule just one or two sessions to get started on a course project, or attend all fifteen 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:
-Join 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

Please register ahead of time and indicate whether you'll be attending in person or on Zoom. If you elect to join via Zoom, the coordinator will email you the Zoom invitation before the session. If register then realize you can't make it, please let the coordinator (jgoranss@gmu.edu) know in advance.

To sign up for a write-in, just register here for the dates you'd like. Please email Jenny Goransson at jgoranss@gmu.edu with questions. The write-ins are open to Mason students only.
