Virtual Writing Room

The Writing Room is a recurring workshop focused on assisting students with graduate-level writing, including writing for thesis or dissertation. The Writing Room provides an intentional scheduled time to write, guidance on focusing your writing, and access to Writing Center consultants on your current writing projects. A Writing Center consultant will lead each writing session.

Join us in person in GROW or online through WebEx. We look forward to writing with you!

Writing Room Format

  1. GROW has set up the writing room in GROW and WebEx​. GROW and CASA Writing Center consultants are present for the duration of the writing time.
  2. ​Participants are encouraged to set up their writing space, complete with drinks or snacks, prior to check-in time. 
  3. Students will spend the first 5 minutes ​checking in and saying hello. You will be asked to set a writing goal for your time in the writing room and submit ​it using the WebEx chat tool or together in GROW. 
  4. ​We will begin each session with a 10-minute writing exercise. ​If you decide to alter your writing goal for the session, write your new goal in the WebEx chat interface or aloud if attending in person. 
  5. Quiet writing time starts 15 minutes after the start of the session. If attending online, please mute your audio for quiet time. It is up to you whether to leave your video on (and be seen) or turn it off (and not be seen) during this time. However, please stay in the writing room. 
  6. During the writing time, you can ask the Graduate Writing Consultants for a 10-minute writing consultation ​by using the chat function or by notifying a GROW employee. If virtual, a Breakout Room will be created for these consultations. If you are attending in person, the small study room will be used for your consultation. The Consultant can help ​you with your writing process, check your work for clarity, or help you determine if a longer appointment outside of the Writing Room would be of benefit to you. 
  7. Towards the end of the writing time, ​consultants will check in with the group about their writing goals and open the writing room to discuss tips and writing strategies.
  8. By the end of the session, you will have made progress on your writing and will be one step closer to completion.
