Finding it difficult to concentrate on your writing? Join one or more of our weekly options for 90-minute virtual write-ins to make progress on your work! Sessions are open to both graduate and undergraduate students and are structured using the Pomodoro technique to help you focus your attention. During the virtual write-in you will:
- Identify your writing goal
- Write without distractions
- Take short breaks
- Learn writing tips
- Complete a final check-in
You can use this session for any type of writing: course assignments, academic papers, cover letters, creative writing, emails, or anything else on your to-do list.

Study with Me Sessions
If you find motivation studying around others, Study with Me is for you!
Study with Me Sessions provide an opportunity to study online for 60 minutes with others. First, set your study goals (e.g., study for an exam, complete a lab assignment, or write a paper), and then work toward those goals in the presence of other students. Microphones are normally turned off (except for two short breaks), but you're encouraged to keep your video on.
Study with Me uses The Pomodoro Method of time management. The 60-minute session will be divided into two 25-minute segments of focused study followed by short, five-minute breaks. Studying in short bursts of time vs. marathon-long sessions keeps you focused. Regular breaks keep you sharp!
Attend one or more of the Study with Me Sessions and make studying productive and fun!

PJ-Friendly Writing Sessions for Undergrads
Are you needing a push to make some progress on an individual or group writing assignment?
Let’s write together!
Join your fellow undergraduates to
- meet other students or form your own group
- brainstorm ideas for your assignments
- get some writing done
- access tutoring (optional), and
- celebrate your accomplishments!
Student Learning Services staff will be on hand to moderate a session structured around the Pomodoro method. However, if you prefer unstructured writing time, you can join a breakout room dedicated to quiet writing in the company of other students. And if you have a group of friends, classmates, or project teams, you can select your own breakout room. Tutors and staff will be available for you to message for assistance! There will be a coffee card prize draw at the end of the night for those wearing their PJs.
