Do you want to be a more productive writer? If you are working on an intensive writing project like a dissertation, thesis, journal article or grant proposal and you would like to increase your writing productivity, consider joining Writing Efficiency Sessions. They are free to attend and can help you move ahead on your writing projects. The atmosphere is a structured, yet laid back, group writing space.

All sessions are held on Zoom, and you can feel free to attend an entire session or only part of a session. Each WES consists of timed writing sprints with short breaks followed by a brief discussion aimed at helping you improve your writing productivity. This event is hosted by the Graduate Center, Postdoctoral Affairs and the Think Tank Writing Center.
