Drop-in event: Write Together

Writing can be easier when done in the company of others

Event date November 11, 2015 3 - 6pm

Write TogetherJoin the MIT Libraries and Writing, Rhetoric, and Professional Communication (WRAP) program as they co-host a drop-in event, Write Together, in the Barker Library conference room.

The WRAP program initiated Write Together in the spring of 2015 to provide a friendly environment for students who wanted to write in the company of others, whether working on an individual or team project. Students enjoy the quiet camaraderie as well as being in the same space as others immersed in the same task. Even though we often think of writing as a solitary act, writing is often done in community.

At Write Together, students can work on different sorts of writing: essays, reports, and even personal statements and letters. When you write alongside others, you may experience calmness, inspiration, and increased confidence.

For this event, WRAP lecturers will be on hand to have the informal kinds of writing conversations that nudge and strengthen the writing and thinking process. MIT librarians will be present, too, to help explore and focus students’ research questions.

MIT students are invited to drop in and join us for some or all of Write Together – go to Barker Library, 5th floor, and follow signs to the conference room. Refreshments will be provided, and students may bring their own coffee or tea.
