Room AB-214 (Beryl Room), Administration Building, Ourimbah Campus
Hey Ourimbah postgrads! 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 so that you can make even greater progress, we've organised a full-day writing boot camp! That's four hours of writing with breaks, and lunch in between. Carve out your schedule for the day, come along and get a ton of writing done.
We'll have snacks to keep you energised during each break, and lunch will be fully catered.
This session will be held in Room AB-214 (The Beryl Room) in the Administration Building, which you can find using this digital map. It's just beyond the counter at the top of the stairs; you can't miss it!
For catering purposes, please register if you wish to attend.
