Shut Up and Write sessions

Venue: Birkbeck Main Building, 633
Booking details: Free entry; booking required

These 'Shut Up and Write' sessions offer Birkbeck research students the chance to dedicate time to writing up research in the company of others. The format and aims are based on those described in the Thesis Whisperer blog and take the form of a series of focussed 25 minute writing sessions, each followed by a brief 5 minute break. During the breaks you can relax, speak with other students who are attending and enjoy a tea/ coffee.

During the writing sessions you will work in silence while in the company of other attendees. You will be invited to switch off your phone and to avoid any temptation to do anything except for writing.

One attendee will be asked in advance to act as the session organiser by keeping track of the time and announcing the start and end of each part of the schedule.
