  • Writing Encouragement Group

    Writing Encouragement Group

    Join other writers and peer tutors every Monday lunchtime to make progress towards finishing your assignment, thesis, job or internship application, or other writing.

    No registration necessary – just show up with the intention to write, and something to write with.

    Bring headphones or earplugs if you need music or silence. Subway is nearby and there is a buzz about the place at lunchtime.

    If you have to arrive a little late, or leave a little early in order to be able to eat lunch in peace, that’s fine. Guidance for productive writing in a short time slot will be provided.

    Location: Bastille (on the left as you walk in)


    Q3: 20 March, 27 March and 3 April

    Q4: Every Monday in May and June except May 29 (tweede pinksterdag)

    Time: 12:45-13:30 (lunch time)
