Shut Up and Write


31/05/2017 - 27/08/2017


1:00PM - 4:00PM


Mondays, TR7, Graduate School.

Do you have trouble concentrating on your writing? Too many distractions? Why not join us to ‘Shut up and Write’?

Shut Up & Write, a movement that started in San Francisco, is a way for writers to structure their time and connect with others.

For academic types, who have embraced the idea, it’s a great way to carve out dedicated writing time and make progress on thesis chapters, journal articles, and grant applications. While an hour doesn’t sound like much, it’s amazing what you can get done if you really focus. The discipline and shared sense of purpose that comes from writing with others also keeps you accountable and reminds you that you aren’t alone” (SUAWT blog).

These sessions will provide peer support, a quiet place to write, and a structured writing plan (not to mention tea & coffee!). Bring your laptops, notes, books, and anything else you need to help you write for 2 hours, and be prepared to be productive!

Every Monday in TR7, 1pm sharp – 4pm. No need to register in advance but if you have any questions email
