Get write to it! 3pm-5pm

Online Book here

These sessions are an opportunity to sit down and write with an online community of people doing the same thing. Think of it as a relaxed online workspace where you can log in once a week and work alongside other people writing whatever essay or other assignment you are working on that week.

These two hour sessions follow the following general pattern:

  • Welcome from a librarian and a brief opportunity to share aims and objectives
  • Two 25minute sessions of writing with a five minute break facilitated by the librarian.
  • After this a Librarian will give an optional  ten minute chat about an aspect of writing (for example, paragraph structure or hints and tips for introduction writing)
  • One more 30 minute sessions of writing will follow with time at the end for people to share what they have achieved in the session.

We welcome all UGs and taught PG students along to these sessions. Feel free to book onto the session even if you are not sure you can make it. There is no limit to numbers and there is no need to cancel if you find you are too busy.
