Shut Up & Write


May 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm





Join us online for GSA's Shut Up & Write sessions! These are intensive sessions focusing on generative writing.

Shut Up & Write sessions are part of a worldwide movement. They’re regular, structured social writing sessions, designed to overcome research student isolation while helping you beat procrastination. Graduate students can use these sessions to write well and write together, providing moral support and motivations.

We are running sessions throughout Semester 1 which will be a great support for study and will help you beat procrastination. We use the Pomodoro Technique (25 minutes writing with 5-minute breaks) and teach the generative method to make sessions as productive as possible. You can work on anything you like, but you must be writing.

**A limited number of in-person places are available in the 1888 Building, in Room 102 . Please ensure you register for an in-person ticket if you would like to join us then make sure you arrive early to be ready to start at 10am (on Mondays) or 2pm (on Tuesdays)**

PLEASE NOTE: this is an event for University of Melbourne graduate students only. When you login to Eventbrite to register, please use your UoM student email. Orders made that do not include a UoM student email and ID will be cancelled.

Venue accessibility: accessible entry is via the courtyards of 1888 Building (back of building) and a lift is located next to reception on the ground floor (near the West courtyard entry). There is an all gender accessible bathroom on Level 1.
