About Companionable Writing
What is Companionable Writing? Companionable Writing is an opportunity to spend two solid hours of work either in person or digitally with other people doing the same thing. A writing consultant will host each session.
What happens at a session? Think of a session as Sustained Silent Writing time. This is a relaxed environment, you can drop in and out as you need. If you wish to set a goal for the session you can do so. At the end of the session we may chitchat for a bit in a companionable way.
Where do I go? Most sessions take place in room 3312. In the event that a session takes place in another location, a sign will be posted on 3312.
How do I join remotely? To join remotely send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a tweet to @gcwwritinghelp at least fifteen minutes before the start of the session and let us know you would like to join. You will then get an invite to a digital platform that will allow you to see and speak to the room and allow people in the room to see and speak to you.
What else do I need to know? We provide coffee and tea. Feel free to bring snacks. There are comfortable rolling chairs and a limited number of outlets. There may be computers accessible in a nearby room.
If you have further questions, or want to join us remotely, please email email@example.com.
