Shut Up and Write /Create Sessions

Due to government and institutional responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, professional historians are experiencing dramatic changes to how we work and socialise. As we learn to negotiate these social challenges, there are persisting economic demands, such as mortgage repayments, food and utility costs, all of which demand our professional lives continue. In response, I have established a series of dedicated Shut Up and Write/Create sessions online.

A core difference between this model and others in existence is that these Shut Up and Write/Create sessions recognise we are now attempting to negotiate work from our households. These spaces may include housemates, parents, children, or a yodelling Border Collie dog. There is the understanding of some sessions maybe a little less structured than others. Also, these sessions are designed to warmly welcome individuals not just writing history but creating history, be it artwork, a musical score, choreography planning, and so forth.

Shut Up and Write /Create sessions are run online with Webex.

  • Mondays, 2.30-4.30 pm (AEST)
