Sit Down & Write!

About the library series of writing workshops

What is "Sit Down & Write"?

SPRING 2022
Thursdays, 3-5pm starting Jan 27
Wednesdays 5:30-7:30pm starting Feb 9

Sit Down & Write is a “Facilitated Writing” session. The idea is that we can have a dedicated time, every week, devoted to writing…or any other quiet creative activity. By scheduling it, and having a group, we can motivate ourselves to actually Sit Down & Write.

We’re using the Pomodoro Technique, which consists of 25 minute working sessions and 5 minute breaks: a time-tested technique that helps many people focus and accomplish tasks.

When is it?

Focused Practice; together while apart. Let's Sit Down & Write, virtually. Cartoon image of a brown skinned woman sitting at a desk on a computer. A screen next to her says Virtual Sit Down & Write 20:22.

We've set up a Microsoft Teams group for Sit Down & Write. Go into Teams and click the icon for the list of Teams. Teams icon

Click 'Join or Create a Team' at the bottom of the Teams list and enter t4is0ho in the 'Join a Team with a Code' option.

You'll get invitations for all the Sit Down & Write events and we can share ideas and resources for improving our focus and productivity.

Why?

Well...to get our writing done!

It's hard to "make time" to write, and to do all the related things that writing requires:

  • Reading
  • Notetaking
  • Analyzing
  • Transcribing
  • Formatting
  • Editing
  • Revising

So come and use a little bit of peer pressure to help make it a priority. We can cheer each other on!

Can't make it?

Can't make the time, but interested in the technique? Want to start your own group?
