Workshop details

 Do you spend more time cleaning your kitchen cupboards than writing?

Do you spend a lot a time working alone and people have forgotten what you
look like?

If so, then come and join a weekly Shut Up and Write! Group.

The session will be facilitated by Muireann O’Keeffe

What shall I bring?: Laptop (or pen/paper – however you like to work), necessary notes, papers, items you need to work.

Rules: No speaking to each other during writing time (only at breaks). No Internet or phone usage.

Why: The idea is to make the act of writing fun and relaxing by working in social groups gathering together to write. See for more info http://thesiswhisperer.com/shut-up-and-write/
