UB|SchreibSprints

Content

  • In the writing time, we guide you to work on your project in a focused way for about one hour.
  • You will learn how to prepare for your writing task and stay focused. You may also get to know your writing buddies better and find yourself in small writing groups that meet beyond the dates offered.
  • Bring your writing assignment with you - it doesn't matter whether you want to sort and write down your thoughts, finally write that one excerpt, get an outline down on paper or pour your introductory notes into two paragraphs of proper text. A lot of text in a limited amount of time, that is the goal of the writing sprint.
  • Set yourself a goal, define it concretely. At the end of the writing time, we reflect together on what you have achieved.
  • After writing, you have the opportunity to discuss your questions about your text and about writing itself in the IwiS writing advice.
