Are you struggling to concentrate? Is your writing constantly interrupted by your inbox, social media and trips to the coffee machine?

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

Come along to a Write Here, Write Now! session in the Wolfson Research Exchange for a few quick bursts of productivity, and learn a new way of managing your time in the process.

How the session runs

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

  • 30 minutes of focused work - no chatting, phones off, disconnect from the internet
  • 10 minutes break - step away from the work, grab a drink and a snack, stretch your legs
  • 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.

How to join

Come to the seminar rooms in the Wolfson Research Exchange on the day for 9:30am!

These sessions are open to both PGTs and PGRs - if you are a PGT and do not have access to the Wolfson Research Exchange, we can grant you access before the session starts - a member of staff will be by the entrance until 9:30am.

Bring your own laptop* or some writing materials - we will provide your hard-earned coffee, tea and snacks!

(*keep your laptop on airplane mode where possible - don't fall down an internet rabbit hole!)

Please note, these sessions focus on facilitating writing only. If you are looking to improve your academic writing skills, please refer to the Academic Writing team.
