Workshops and Events

Columbia University Writing Center

Writing Productivity Sessions

Like promising to meet a friend for a jog, Writing Productivity Sessions motivate you to show up and get writing done. You and other Columbia writers will come together online to briefly set goals and then start working. The facilitator will time the session for you and let you know when you take breaks.

If you happen to join late, please quietly get started writing so that you don't disturb people who are already writing. You are still welcome to participate even if you're not able to stay for the whole session.

There's no limit on the number of Productivity Sessions writers may participate in. We look forward to seeing you there.

To sign-up, please select 'Writing Productivity Sessions Fall 2021' from our scheduler's login page, or from the pull-down menu on the scheduler's top bar tools.
