Shut up and Write

The Shut Up and Write sessions provide a quiet space for doctoral students to get work done with colleagues in a friendly, supportive environment.

We share goals and help each other with writing questions between timed silent-working sessions: no emails, no distractions, just dedicated and focused time to get your work done!

Please bring your own work for the silent sessions. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Participants will be guided through the different types of catalogues they are likely to encounter when working in museums and heritage organisations. 

Booking is essential.
