12/19 "Shut Up and Write" Event
Do you have an article draft you need to work on? An outline to refine? A book proposal to begin? Even a totally half-baked research idea to flesh out on [real or virtual] paper? Okay, so answer this: are you your own worst enemy when it comes to putting nose to the grindstone?
Begun in San Francisco
, “Shut Up and Write” meetup groups have popped up around the country, including a community of academic writers called
Shut Up and Write Tuesdays
, who write and Tweet together on—you guessed it: Tuesdays (
). These writing communities are set up to help authors skip the procrastination and “get on with it already.” And, if you don't know where or how to begin -- we'll help you.
Join the ACRL/NY New Librarians Discussion Group, the Mentoring Program, and the Research & Writing Support Group for an evening of writing, encouragement, a bit of networking and refreshments, and more writing.
This event is open to current members of ACRL/NY.
