Shut up and write

Shut up and write

Posted on behalf of Albert Sloman Library

Do you struggle with procrastination, or find it difficult to get started? This workshop is facilitated by an experienced tutor, and is for students who want a distraction free space to focus on writing.

Using a variation of the Pomodoro Technique, you will be given blocks of time in a peaceful environment, where you will be asked to switch off mobile phones and wifi/internet access, and encouraged to get down to work.

In the regular breaks, you can ask the workshop facilitator any writing related questions you may have, whether they're about grammar, structure, whether something makes sense, or overcoming writer's block. And tea and coffee will be provided, along with some snacks to keep your energy up.

All students need to bring their own laptop or device to write with, and other than that, there is nothing you need to do, except exactly what the title says - shut up and write.
