Stuck on that thesis chapter or journal article? Want to overcome your writer’s block, beat procrastination and make real progress? Then shut up and write!
Shut Up & Write (SUAW) sessions are communal writing events, where students sit together and work on their respective writing projects while blocking out distractions. Writing in a group is like exercising in a group: it’s easier to stay motivated when there are other people around you doing it as well, and keeping you on task.
Each session is structured according to the Pomodoro technique – a series of 25-minute writing blocks divided by 5-minute breaks – to keep you fresh and focused. The breaks are a great opportunity to chat with other students, share tips and laugh about how long you’ve been putting off that lit review. And we'll have plenty of snacks on hand to keep you energised.
- 10am - 12pm: First writing block (four Pomodoros with breaks)
- 12pm - 1pm: Lunch break (lunch will not be catered, but snacks will be provided)
- 1pm - 3pm: Second writing block (four Pomodoros with breaks)
This session will be held in the meeting room of our UNSA building, between the Student Services building and Bar on the Hill. Due to COVID health and safety restrictions, there are only 15 places available, so register quickly if you wish to attend!
And for those of you that can't attend in person, we'll be hosting it through Zoom at the same time! Now you can join in and write from anywhere, and chat with everyone in the room during the breaks.
