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 (@SUWTNA). 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 & refreshments, and more writing.
