Writing Marathon

Intensive work on your own writing project!

Monday, 2 September – Friday, 6 September 2019, daily from 10.00 a.m. – 6.26 p.m. This results in a marathon distance of 42.19 hours. Where? C5, first floor.

We start at 10.00 a.m. in the morning with a welcoming and a short writing warm-up exercise in C5.122. Afterwards you will start writing: Either you can use a well-known time management method (25 min writing, 5 min break in rotation) or you can write on your own. All seminary rooms in the first floor are booked for this event. Additionally, this year we can offer you short inputs and workshops as well as a little communal breakfast on Wednesday and a session of yoga on Thursday.

In case your writing flow comes to a stop, you can seek new motivation and advice in C5.122 where writing tutors of the Schreibzentrum / Writing Center and staff of the Methodoly Center and the Library are happy to help you with any questions. We all know that a bit of complaining is part of every writing process, and someone who is there to listen can be of help. 

We will provide you with beverages (coffee, tea, water) as well as snacks. The Writing Marathon goes without an entrance fee, which is why we rely on donations!

There is no obligation for participants to be present at the Writing Marathon at all times. It is You who decides how much time You are willing – and able – to invest in Your writing project. It is perfectly fine to participate only on some days as well as for some hours.

To be able to plan how many participants will join, we ask you to register via myStudy (myStudy > Zusätzliche Angebote > Schreibzentrum / Writing Center > Workshops > Schreibmarathon). Attending without registering beforehand, however, is possible too!
