Shut Up and Write!

April 29 @ 13:00 - 15:30

If you struggle to find time to make regular progress with your writing then a change of scene and some (supportive) peer pressure could help.

The aim of a Shut Up and Write! session is to provide you with dedicated time and space, away from everyday distractions, to progress your own writing projects. You will work in short, focused bursts of time on a writing task of your choice (e.g. a journal article, monograph, thesis chapter, conference paper, blog post or any other scholarly output).

There is no ‘facilitation’ or specific feedback on your writing but we encourage you to set yourself writing targets and share progress with each other and there will be a member of staff on hand to keep time.

You will get the most out of the session if you:

– come prepared to write, saving any documents you need to access in advance
(wifi use during the sessions is discouraged)
– have a clear idea of the progress you want to make during the time
– bring a laptop or notebook and pen with you

These sessions are aimed at Doctoral Researchers and Early Career Researchers at Sheffield Hallam University who want to progress academic writing projects.
