Who said writing (or reading) needs to be a solitary experience? Our Shut up & Work sessions aim to help you work more productively in a supportive environment. You come along, set your target for the day and work until you achieve your target. Each session starts at 9:30 and finishes at 17:00 and has coffee breaks to allow you to recharge and network with other postgraduate researchers without feeling guilty.
