Shut Up & Write – Coffs Harbour Campus

February 21, 2017 @ February 21, 2017 - February 21, 2017

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Tuesday, repeating until April 25, 2017

The Library is hosting a series of Shut Up & Write! sessions for staff and HDR students.


Keeping on top of writing commitments can be a struggle.

Shut up & Write @ SCU Library is an opportunity to commit to a period of writing in a neutral space—not in your office, nowhere near your phone and away from your students, family, or colleagues. HDR candidates and academic staff are invited to work alongside each other and simply shut up and write. There is no agenda, critiquing, exercises, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty.

At 8am sharp, we begin writing in silence and stop 25 minutes later for a 5-10 min break. The break serves as an opportunity for the group to grab a drink, talk and clear their brain (get some perspective). We settle down again for another 25 minutes writing and then the session winds up.

So simple – but it works.

Our goal is to help you set aside dedicated writing time, make progress, learn from others, and become part of a community of academic writers.

So if you’ve got a thesis chapter, journal article, grant application, or conference abstract to write, you’ve come to the right place!
