Shut Up and Write

Shut Up and Write is intended as a get-together where you spend your time on reading and writing with other people in the same room, a kind of writing club. You need to bring nothing but your books, laptops and maybe some candy. Come and go as you like.

February 14 from 11 am to 5pm (Psychology/Ecology Seminar Room 1.50)
February 26 from 10 am to 5 pm (ABI Seminar B6.21)
