Is it hard to find time to write?
Losing your motivation and getting sidetracked?
Shut up and write! Mondays 3-4.30pm Library cafe, starting 3 February, look for the red sign. Just turn up – at least one person will be there each week.
‘Shut up and write’ is about getting together to simply write. Write anything at all – report, journal article, literature review, blog post. The format is get a beverage (or not) and chat, shut up and write for 25 minutes, short chat, shut up and write for 25 minutes, then say goodbye till next week.
Natalie Spence from the Learning and Teaching Centre is setting up a writing group using this format. If Monday afternoons don’t work for you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an alternative or setup your own group.
