Shut Up and Write (Weekly sessions) - *Cancelled*

Cancellation notice:

As of March 12, the University recommends cancellation or postponement of all discretionary events that are not required as part of courses and academic requirements due to concerns over COVID-19. As a precaution, we will cancel all remaining March and April sessions.

Having trouble with finding the time and motivation to write? Shut Up and Write is a chance for academic writers within the UofT community to write productively in a communal setting.

The drop-in sessions will follow the Pomodoro technique where there will be a sequence of short sprints of writing with a few breaks in between.

Bring your work (laptop or paper) and we'll help you with your productivity!

WHO: Current U of T undergraduates, graduates, and doctoral students are all welcome
