In an effort to assist faculty in their creative and scholarly endeavors, the Social Science Research Center is hosting a weekly Shut Up and Write Tuesday Session. If you haven’t heard of it, the idea is that you set aside dedicated writing time and make progress towards your writing goals. By doing so, you are joining an community of academic writers, both at DePaul and abroad.
Our chapter is a little different. For instance, we will be taking over a physical space for 2 hours. We also will provide coffee, tea, and some variety of lovely baked good. Participants should bring their laptops, tablets, legal pads (and pens), scrolls, parchments and the like. We are not holding each other accountable- you can drop in as you feel the need (your not writing is between you and the productivity gods). You will not be shamed for missing a week. Hitting up SUWT definitely does buy some amount of smugness though, so be prepared to consider yourself superior to your peers.
Shut up and Write Tuesdays (SUWT) will begin Tuesday September 15th at 12pm and continue throughout the fall semester. Come for an hour or two. We will be in Suite 3100 of 990 W. Fullerton. While you should definitely bring your favorite coffee mug, don’t panic if you left yours at home- we will have coffee, cups, creamer, and tea. Just bring your writing stuff and ideas, we have the rest. So join us. And be productive.
