Start Your Fall Semester Strong With Writing Together Online
The Writing Together Online program is back! Please join our 90-minute sessions, which create a community of scholars who connect, set realistic goals, and write together to motivate each other. This program is open to graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, researchers, or all, who are actively writing their proposals, manuscripts, or thesis/dissertation chapters.

We expanded the choice of sessions to accommodate those who prefer to write early and those who need longer sessions. Feel free to register for any number of sessions, from one to all:

Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, and Fri, 9-10:30am (EST)

1. Pre-register for the days and times of the week which work for your schedule, and we will send you the link to connect. 
2. Set up your laptop, books, articles, water, and snacks before your session.
3. Think of the writing goals and tasks for your session.
3. Connect through the link 5 minutes before the event. Please note that we start on time (not by MIT time).

What to expect during this event:
1. We will start with a short announcement about this program;

3. We will then send everyone to breakout rooms to write;
