Virtual Shut Up and Write | Every Tuesday

Tune in for our weekly virtual sessions and get more writing done.

NOTE: Our last session for 2022 will be on Tuesday, 20 December. Stay tuned to this page and register when we start up again on Tuesday, 10 January 2023!

What is Shut Up and Write?

A group of PhD and Masters by Research students get together virtually over zoom to have a quick cuppa and chat, then spend 1.5 hours writing in 25 minute blocks with 5 minute breaks in between.

It’s amazing how productive you can be when you set aside dedicated time and hear everyone else tapping away on their keyboards.  That’s why Shut Up and Write has become a global phenomenon.

How can I prepare in advance to get more done:

  • Have a writing plan and materials prepared (articles, notes, chart) so you are able to concentrate on your writing without any interruptions.
  • Set your own target of how much writing you want to achieve during this shut up and write session.
  • Focus on drafting new material for the thesis as opposed to editing, revising, or re-hashing existing content.

“I just wanted to say thank you for hosting (and MGA for running) the SUAW sessions.  I have usually been pretty good at moving along with my writing but C-19 has knocked me out a bit.  This really had me going.  The first day I really had my brain moving along again.  Did the planning as suggested and had a really productive time.  I’m VERY happy with my writing achievement today.  See you at another session.  Thanks so much again.
