What:  The ESRC Scholars' Association is offering regular 'Shut up and write' sessions for DTP students who'd benefit from peer support (or a bit of pressure) to help produce coursework essyas, thesis chapters, conference/journal papers or other written material. These sessions will provide a dedicated time when like-minded graduates can get together for a period of writing, which includes a break and time to chat about goals. Coffee and snacks will be provided and a member of the Scholars' Association will always attend to lead each session. Although regularly attending will help build an accountable writing community, you can drop in for as many sessions as you'd find helpful.

Queries: For any questions, please contact either of the co-chairs, Will Allen (william.allen@compas.ox.ac.uk) or Ivo Gruev ( ivo.gruev@merton.ox.ac.uk)

Booking: No sign-up needed - just drop into as many (or as few) sessions as you'd find helpful.
