This program helps maintain or reinforce solid writing practices and focus. Providing the “break talks” are very helpful, reminding all of us how to break things down and pace.

Weekly Just-Write Sessions

Weekly just-write sessions are held mutliple times each week and are open to any Lehigh University graduate student. 

Graduate writers can use this time to work on their own writing while knowing that others are also writing. Each just-write session may use the pomodoro (or similar) technique to balance writing & break times. Writers are welcome to stay for the entire session or to enter or leave the session as their schedule permits, and they may attend as many or as few as they find useful each week.

NSF GRFP Working Group(s)

If you are a STEM student who is a rising senior or first- or second-year graduate student and are planning on applying for the NSF GRFP fellowship in the fall, this group is for you. We will meet 2 times per month in July and August, then at least once per week in September and October. We will discuss application expectations and will help each other during the drafting process.

Meeting time, place, and venue (i.e., f2f, virtual, or hybrid) will be determined by the group members. 

Please complete this interest form before Friday, July 8 and Dr. Yvonne Lee from the Graduate Writers' Studio will be in touch soon with more information. 

A virtual Information Session was offered on Tuesday, June 21st at 12:00pm . If you were unable to attend, the recording can be found below.

 

I really enjoyed getting to hear from other graduate students on where they are at in their programs and enjoyed feeling productive and meeting my goals.
