Shut up and read! Shut up and write!

Workshop

Date: Wednesday 18 May 2022

Time: 10.00 – 12.00

Location: Online and on campus (see below)

Do you have reading or writing to do and are you having trouble staying focused? Join the Academic Writing Service for a Shut up and read! Shut up and write! session on campus or online.

During a Shut up and read! Shut up and write! meeting you put aside everything unrelated to your work and focus on getting your reading or writing done. You work together with other students, switch off your mobile phone and read or write intensively for two hours. To aid concentration we use a version of the Pomodoro method: we work for 45 minutes and then take a 15-minute break. During the break, you can share reading and writing tips with other students and get advice from one of the Academic Writing Service’s consultants.

Shut up and read! Shut up and write! is a weekly meeting held every Wednesday morning in person at the Academic Writing Service and online via Zoom. This event is open to all students at Stockholm University and the Swedish Defence University. The event will be held in Swedish and English.

To ensure that you get the most out of this event, it is important that you arrive on time. If you have to join the online meeting after the starting time, please communicate with the host via chat. If you are arriving late to the in-person meeting, please take care to avoid disturbing the other participants.
