The Queensland Writers Centre is hosting a series of Writing Fridays at Maleny Library. These are free morning to afternoon sessions of focused writing using the Pomodoro Technique on:

Friday 12th April
Friday 10th May
Friday 14th June
Friday 12th July

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method used to increase productivity developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The word 'pomodoro' is Italian for 'tomato' which refers to the tomato-shaped timer Cirillo used as a university student to study. The technique uses a timer to breakdown work into 25 minute intervals or pomodoros without interruption with a 5 minute break in between.

The Writing Fridays schedule is as follows:

9am: Maleny Library opens.

Session 1: 9:15-9:40
Break 5 mins

Session 2: 9:45-10:10
Break 5 mins

Session 3: 10:15-10:40

Session 5: 11:25-11:50
