The Shut Up & Write that PhD is an initiative of ASCA PhD’s, started right after the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis in 2020 in order to connect and avoid isolation. Every Monday and Thursday, you are welcome to join the Shut Up & Write sessions.

From 9.30 to 12.30, we shut up and write together in a Zoom session: 

This means 3 hours of putting away all distractions and focusing on PhD work. We do advise to take small breaks in between - you could use a pomodoro timer – but stay away from distractions such as news websites, email and social media during the allotted time. It truly helps focus and progress. The sessions also provide a chance for meeting other PhD students and researchers. 

What a session looks like: 

9.30 camera and mic on for check-in: share what you are working on and goals 


Write! Mic muted, camera on/off following yourmeer own preference 


12.30  camera and mic on for catch up: share your writing experience and review goals. You can join us via
