Shut Up and Write (Weekly Winter sessions) Innis Edition

Shut Up and Write (Weekly Winter sessions) Innis Edition

Having trouble with finding the time and motivation to write? 
Need a jumpstart to focus on writing for your assignment, screenplay, short story, cover letter, or grant application? 


Shut Up and Write is a chance for academic and creative 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!
