The Writing Series: Weekly Writing Retreats
Course Description:

Every Tuesday 09:45-12:30, the Writing Lab hosts an online Writing Retreats for all students and staff. We meet in this way to create a supportive space in which to write, and develop a helpful regular routine of focused writing.

At the Writing Lab we know that dissertation/thesis writing can be lonely and that motivation can ebb and flow over time; we want to create a routine and a little community of thesis writers to help us be productive and healthy in our writing practice. We start with a writing exercise to help get us warmed up for whatever writing we are doing and share our writing intentions for the day.
