Sit Down and Write with the CFDE This Summer

Do you need to make headway on a writing project this summer?

Sit Down and Write with the CFDE!

Join the CFDE—virtually or in-person—for Sit Down and Write. Sit Down and Write is a great way for writers to structure their time, boost their productivity, and connect with others.


The formula is simple:

  • On Tuesdays at 11 am, we gather at Kaldi Coffee on the Emory campus in the DUC
  • Or connect via Facebook
  • We write in silence for an hour, and catch-up either online or over coffee afterwards
  • We begin by writing for 25 minutes, then we take a 5-minute break to check in, write for 25 more minutes, then take a few minutes at the end to catch up.

Sit Down and Write is a great way to carve out dedicated writing time and make progress on thesis chapters, journal articles, and grant applications. While an hour doesn’t sound like much, it’s amazing what you can get done if you really focus. The discipline and shared sense of purpose that comes from writing with others also keeps you accountable and reminds you that you aren’t alone.

To participate in person, just come join us at Kaldi Coffee in the School of Medicine!

To participate virtually on Facebook, join the CFDE-organized Facebook group.
