Daily Group Writing Sessions To Get Your Writing Done

A Virtual Writing Support Group For PhD Students

We offer daily virtual group writing sessions. By making the commitment to attend some or all of these, you’re building a strong foundation for your thesis writing practice.

It’s an empowering experience, particularly once you start to see how much progress you make, and how much more easily you are able to write.

You won’t finish your thesis if you don’t develop the necessary discipline to develop a daily writing practice. The PhD Writing Hour helps you develop this habit.

And writing in the virtual company of other students has a powerful effect. Not only do you build community by seeing similar faces, you know that you’re surrounded by people in a similar situation to you. Being in the company of others is very motivating.


Group Zoom-Based Writing Sessions

10-11am UK time Every Weekday

Log On

Sign up to get access to every writing session. 


We start each session with an introduction. Say hi, share your goals, and get comfy.


Then, we turn off our mics and write silently for 60 minutes.


You’ll quickly see the effect that writing in groups has on your output, accountability and confidence.

How & Why The PhD Writing Hour Works

The format is simple. Each day we run a virtual writing session on Zoom. Log on 5-10 minutes before the start and get comfy. The host will then ask everyone to share what they plan on working on, and then everyone writes together (camera on, microphone off!) for an hour. After, there’s a 10-15 minute chat to socialise and to share advice and reflections. No one will read your work, and there’s no homework.

This format works. It’s been replicated in one form or another around the world and has shown itself to be a powerful catalyst for accountability and community.

Build connection, stay accountable, and build a more consistent writing practice. Designed for PhD students from any subject and at any stage.
