Tired of pulling all-nighters right before a deadline?
Want to increase your writing productivity in a sustainable way?
Faced with the goal of staying on track with their master's thesis, two graduate students in Educational Psychology, Emily and Jessica, sought resources to help them confront the dreaded blinking cursor.
They were inspired by Paul Silvia's How to Write a Lot, and decided to develop activities to engage other graduate students in staying on track with writing goals. Emily and Jessica successfully sought funding from the Mary H. Brown Fund and began their collaboration with Graphos to launch the Reformed Binge Writers Group. An initial "Writing Strategies" event on September 19 attracted over 20 students interested in learning more. Check out a Grad Life post from Fanny Dionne about what she took away from the event.
The Reformed Binge Writers Group will be meeting regularly over the course of the term, with the goal of providing support and writing accountability.
Reformed Binge Writers Group members will benefit in the following ways:
- receive a copy of How to Write a Lot
- take part in a brief weekly check-in about writing goals
- learn new strategies at six lunchtime sessions on Sept 26, Oct 3, Oct 17, Oct 31, Nov 14, Nov 28, from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (Thomson House, room 406)
Once the group has reached its maximum capacity of 20 students, you can still submit an application to join the waitlist. We will inform you of your status shortly after we receive your application.
