Shut up & Write
Every THURSDAY Charles Building,10am-12pm Room: 
announed on weekly on Twitter) 

To mix academic and social events, we have decided to start a weekly Shut up & Write session.

These writing sessions are based on the concept of #shutupandwrite. The idea is simple: we meet in a room and write.
We work in 25-30 min blocks and enjoy some coffee & conversation during short breaks in between (you can read more about the concept here).

There is no need to sign up for these sessions, just turn up and write, grab a coffee and socialize in the break and work on whatever as long as you're working quietly. 

Bring a cup, we supply the coffee!

The Postgraduate Research Students' Society organises monthly socials for current and prospective postgraduate students at SHU. Through a diverse range of events including walks in the Peak District, pub quiz socials, and a day trips to places such as York and Liverpool, we have established a community in which postgraduate students' can meet up with like minded people, share ideas and concerns, and enjoy some time out from academic life. We also organise the annual SHU Postgraduate Humanities Conference, which invites postgraduates from across Sheffield Hallam and other universities to present their research.
