Shut up & Write! | November 12 - 14, 2018

Register HERE:

Writing can be tough. Setting aside blocks of time and locating a quiet space to writing can be a challenge. This concept is simple. Show up. Set a goal. Open your laptop, grab a cup of coffee or tea settle in and write.

Shut up and Write! may not work for everyone. If you are looking for the full gambit of support in the form of individual writing consultations, lunch-n-learn discussions about writing strategies, debriefing groups to celebrate accomplishment, goals and best practices then the Graduate Student Write-in workshop may interest you as well.

What to Expect:

1. Comfortable Atmosphere to Write

2. To set daily goals

3. No critiques, no interruptions, no speakers, Just Write!
