Title:Shut up and Write

Duration:0.5 days

This series is delivered by the Graduate School 

Target audience

All PGT's and PGR's

Early career research staff


This session is for Masters students, Postgraduate Research students and Research-only staff.

The “Shut up and Write” series is designed to help you focus when writing. The sessions are structured using a similar approach to the Pomodoro Technique, which is a time management tool used to break down periods of writing into timed intervals. In order to get the most out of the sessions, you should bring something to write as the sessions are focused around writing.

For more information on the Pomodoro Technique please visit http://pomodorotechnique.com/ 


You will need to bring with you:

  • Writing materials – pen, paper or a laptop (fully charged) if you use one.
  • Any documents/resources – papers, field-notes, interview data etc.

The session starts with a brief introduction and is then broken into 4 cycles: 

- Introduction: 15 minutes

- Cycle 1: Writing – 20 minutes 
- 5 minute break
- Cycle 2: Writing – 20 minutes 
- 5 minute break
- Cycle 3: Writing – 20 minutes
- 5 minute break
- Cycle 4: Writing – 20 minutes

The writing period is 80 minutes long – please remember to bring something to write.

You are invited to bring your own lunch to consume after the session has finished.

For this series, you only need to register for your first session. If you would like to attend more than one session, please email pg-training@nottingham.ac.uk who will happily book you onto future sessions. Please note you can attend any of the training sessions.

This is not a training course, but a concentrated period for writing. 


Latecomer policy

Researchers should plan to arrive prior to the advertised course start time. Except for exceptional reasons, there will be no admittance to a Graduate School or Faculty Training Programme (FTP) course 15 minutes after the advertised course start time.

Importance of booking commitment When booking on to a Graduate School short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course) or if at short notice by emailing pg-training@nottingham.ac.ukThis will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list. Failure to cancel a place results in other researchers missing out on places through the waiting list process.

It is unacceptable for researchers to just not attend when booked onto a course. The Graduate School maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Graduate School courses and will affect considerations for Graduate School funded opportunities.
