About Sit Tight & Write

The difficulties of research writing are sometimes intensified by the process’s solitary and perhaps isolating nature. Since writing is a skill that must be practiced, the Research Capacity Development Unit offers opportunities for students to write in person. The goal is to stimulate the establishment of peer communities of practice that will motivate one another to “keep going” by getting students to sit down, write, and offer facilitation and feedback when asked.

In 2024, Sit Tight & Write will be mobile! Invite us to assist your postgraduate students with their writing processes in the form of a focused group session.
