Inspired by posts on #WIASN (if you’re a woman in academia, you *must* join #WIASN – look them up on Facebook) and fully aware that I struggle to write without any external motivation, I’ve decided to set up a regular Shut Up & Write! session in Leicester (if you don’t know what Shut Up & Write! is, there’s a good summary on The Thesis Whisperer).
The sessions, which will run fortnightly, are not affiliated with an HEI and all established academics, independents, ECRs and PhD students are welcome. If you’ve got something to write – book, journal paper, thesis, teaching materials, funding application, whatever – please join us!
The inaugural session is *THIS FRIDAY*, 3-5pm in the Cafe Bar at the Phoenix. Get there at 2.30pm for pre-writing chat, coffee and cake. If you’d like to come along, please email me or find me on Twitter.
