Write Here, Write Now

Are you struggling to concentrate? Is working from home preventing you from getting "in the zone" with your work?

Our minds work best in short, focused intervals - eliminating all distractions for a while to avoid procrastination.

Check our On Track programme for upcoming Write Here, Write Now focused work sessions, and chat to other postgrads during the breaks!

How the session runs

Loosely based on the Pomodoro technique® developed by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s, the structure of the sessions are:

  • 50 minutes of focused work - silence your mobile and email and get on with writing and research
  • 10 minutes break - chat to neighbours and grab a tea or coffee
  • Repeat!

The purpose of the session isn't to give advice on the content or style of your writing - just to give you the time and space to work effectively, and to help you learn how to structure your study time.

Our PG Ambassador Aicha is a big fan of Write Here Write Now; watch the video to know more why she loves the activity!
