Event description

Description

These 'Shut Up and Write' sessions are for those who wish to:

  • Share innovations in teaching in articles, chapters, books
  • Share insight into arts practice in articles, chapters, books
  • Share results of Hons, Masters, or PhD projects in books, chapters or articles
  • Construct a grant application to pursue on a larger scale
  • Struggle to do this in the time available
  • Want coaching from arts researchers who have strategies for writing in the context of their overall academic job

The six sessions will provide about 18-24 hours to construct a draft of an article length piece of writing, within a community of practice, with a range of researchers at a range of career stages. Participants will be able to simply sit and write, and/or to seek advice, support, and coaching on structuring an argument for an article, converting thesis content into an article, writing sections in a quick, easy, and efficient way, choosing a publisher, and so forth. At the close of the six weeks, participants should have a solid draft of an article length piece of writing, and be ready to look at possible outlets for this piece of writing. As always, the QUT Creative Lab will be happy to assist members in identifying suitable publication outlets.

Session times will be:

  • Friday 15 June 1.30pm - 4.30pm
  • Friday 22 June 1.30pm - 4.30pm
  • Friday 29 June 1.30pm - 4.30pm
  • Friday 6 July 1.30pm - 4.30pm
  • Friday 13 July 1.30pm - 4.30pm
  • Friday 20 July 1.30pm - 4.30pm

Prior to each session, there will be a professional development seminar from 11.00am - 12.30pm. The seminars, which look at how artist-researchers can better balance the demands of teaching, service, practice and research to build their research profile, how artistic tools, processes, and outputs form the basis of publications, how to write up experiments in teaching and in practice, and how to maintain one's own sense of well being whilst working in a teacher-artist-researcher role. Full details of all sessions will be available at the Creative Lab website.
