Shut Up & Write Cafe for Postgraduates

Thursdays 10.00-11.30am starting April 11th 2019


Write right poster

Based on a tried and tested format using the pomodoro method of 25 minute writing sessions interspersed with 5 minute breaks for coffee/chatting, this writing cafe is a must if you are trying to write and it's not going as well as you'd hoped.

A quick Google will show how popular this style of writing support is for postgraduates around the world. It can help with getting started, overcoming writer's block and beating procrastination. Also, sometimes, writing as a postgraduate can be a lonely experience and groups like this are a great place to meet others in a similar situation.


This is a pilot group so we will be asking for feedback after each session but we also want to hear from those of you who would like to come but find the day/time doesn't fit in with your schedule. Let us know what days/times would suit you better and we can take that on-board for further sessions. You can contact us at

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday 11th at 10am.
