Studies in social motivation suggest that people persevere and stick to finishing difficult tasks when they see others in the room doing the same thing.  This is the rationale for group writing environment of the Writing Boot Camp.  Writing Boot Camps provide CI students with a quiet, dedicated, and monitored space to write.  A WMC faculty consultant is available for feedback and answering questions on writing.  Spaces are limited to 25 students per session and require students to register in advance.  Students who register must commit to attending the entire session (four hours). 

Writing Boot Camps are FREE, but you must provide a $20 check/cash deposit, which will be returned to you once you completed the program.  The deposit is meant to encourage students to stick to the program and finish.

Spots are prioritized for capstone students and seniors but any student (including graduate students) may apply.  

Registration begins Monday, October 2, 2018Submit the Writing Boot Camp form (MS Word, 14KB) in person or via email to the Faculty Director (sohui.lee@csuci.edu).

WMC Studio Hours

Begins Week 2 (Wed, Sept 5, 2018) and ends Week 15 (Sunday, Dec 9)
Hours: Tuesdays to Thursdays, 8:00pm-10:00pm; Sundays, 2:00pm-6:00pm
What:  Drop-In Tutoring; Support while writing

WMC Studio Hours are open for all students (no appointments necessary).  Students have an opportunity to actively write in a group environment and get writing support from a professional consultant and one of our peer consultants so that they can keep writing.   Each session for writing lasts two hours but students can drop in and leave at any time. While we do not take appointments, students can stop by for 30 minute drop in tutoring on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays.

Setting aside time and being motivated to write can be hard--use WMC Studio Hours to help you keep on track with writing and other communication projects so that you don't fall behind.  Read about it (then called "Writing Labs") in CI's Information Technology Servicess Blog.  

If students need one-to-one dedicated help for more than 30 minutes, we recommend that they make an appointment with one of our tutors during our regular operational hours.
