‘Shut Up & Write’ is a facilitated drop-in writing event, which happens weekly. You are welcome to come to any session. The aim of this type of event is to boost your productivity and focus. After a brief greeting with the group, each person declares their goals for the session, and we then work to a timer, with short breaks between periods of focussed work. Participants regularly find that they achieve more progress than usual, and benefit from working alongside other research writers.
About the facilitator
Cassily has worked in universities for 20 years in Group-of-Eight, regional and international universities, in academic literacy, researcher development and English linguistics. In recent years she has supported thousands of research candidates, early career researchers, supervisors and other academic staff and students with counselling, teaching, writing groups, writing feedback and coaching. In addition to her degrees in linguistics and education, she is a qualified social worker. She never finished her own PhD, many years ago – and doesn’t regret it – but has travelled that journey with others many times since then.
