Here’s how the sessions work: 

10.00 Brief introduction and outline of how it will work.  Switch off social media, emails and other distractions and prepare to focus. 

10.05 5 minute ‘free writing’ – what do you want/need to work on today? 

10.10 make a note of your intention today (what you want to achieve).  Then share that intention with at least one other person. 

10.15  1st sprint.  Timer set and everyone works for 25 minutes. 

10.40  break to stretch/coffee/chat , reflect on what achieved.  Reset intention 

10.50 2nd sprint.  25 mins writing 

11.15  break to stretch/coffee/chat, reflect on what achieved.  Resent intention 

11.25 3rd sprint  25 mins writing 

11.50  final reflection – what do you need (or want)  to do next to move your writing on? 

The main room will be a space to welcome people, to ask questions and chat.  Writing sprints will be in break-out rooms (in MS Teams). 

Sessions are open to Falmouth University students and Cornwall-based University of Exeter students – just enter your Uni email on the booking link.

Etiquette 

We will write alongside each other during writing sprints and try not to break others’ concentration (for instance by talking or using phones). 

If you would like to speak with the ASK advisor during a writing sprint, raise your (virtual) hand.
