"Shut up and write!"

Skrivseminarium

Background information
"Shut Up & Write is a way for writers to structure their time and connect with others. The formula is simple: meet in a convenient location, write in silence for an hour, and catch-up over coffee afterwards.

It’s a great way to carve out dedicated writing time and make progress on thesis chapters, journal articles, and grant applications. The discipline and shared sense of purpose that comes from writing with others also keeps you accountable and reminds you that you aren’t alone." (Source)

How it works at Blåsenhus
The rooms are booked from 9-17 during which the intention is to get 6 hours of undistracted working done (see below for a preliminary schedule). It is of course perfectly fine if you work on other things than writing, as long as it is in silence. The only commitment for participants is to be quiet during the writing sessions – being social during the breaks is optional.
