Shut Up and Write

Image of a statue saying be quiet

The Shut Up and Write sessions provide a quiet space for doctoral students and Early Career Researchers 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.

Four sessions are running this term led by Dr Ágota Márton. Ágota is a lecturer in English at Brasenose College where she teaches literary theory and Anglophone literature from the nineteenth century to the present. Her research is in twentieth- and twenty-first-century British and Irish fiction, and she is currently preparing her first book for publication on the modernist legacies of aesthetic attention. Ágota ran Shut Up and Write sessions at TORCH in 2021 and 2022. She is passionate about creating supportive and productive writing communities and looks forward to meeting many of you in Hilary term.
