This Saturday, January 25th from 9:30 – 4:30 we will be hosting a Winter Bootcamp for Thesis Writers. The day will include timed writing sessions, a workshop on writing and mindfulness, free breakfast and lunch, a thesis journal making workshop, snacks and caffeine, camaraderie, and the option to have individual consultations with Writing Center staff on time management and goal setting. We ask students to register so we can purchase the right amount of food.
Additionally, we are working with the library this semester to provide thesis writers with biweekly write-ins, Sundays from 10am-12pm at the Shapiro Center for Writing and Wednesdays from 8 – 10pm in the Devlin Room in the Olin Library. These write-ins will be staffed by Writing Workshop tutors, and, in addition to caffeine and snacks, will provide thesis writers with consistency and accountability as they work on their projects. As we all know, dedicating two or four hours every week to the thesis writing process is exactly what gets the project done!
Lastly, we will offer a spring break bootcamp on March 22nd from 9:30 – 4:30 at the Shapiro Center for Writing following a similar schedule as the Winter boot camp. Registration can be found here.
