Weekly Just-Write Sessions

Weekly just-write sessions are held mutliple times each week and are open to any Lehigh University graduate student from September 6th through December 15th. 

Graduate writers can use this time to work on their own writing while knowing that others are also writing. Each just-write session will 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. Registration is not required.
