FRIDAY 9th, 3 pm: SHUT UP AND WRITE
Shut up and Write! turns writing from a solitary to a social experience.
The concept is simple: meet up with others in a cafe and write. The concept originated in the San Francisco Bay Area, amongst creative writers, but, thanks to social media, has spread amongst research students around the world. The idea is to make the act of writing fun and relaxing, as the San Francisco group puts it:
“No critiquing, exercises, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty”
We will be using the Pomodoro Technique, where you write for 2 X 45-minute sprints. Then you will be able to grab a coffee, tea, lunch or cake from next door at the cafe.
Invite your friends.

“Amanda’s got a knack for cutting to the chase and simplifying the message so that it’s easy to grasp. This makes it clear as to exactly how you should apply what she teaches, and makes this resource perfectly practical.
You’ve saved me hours of time that I would have spent researching and learning about how to improve in this area. Thank you.” Nicola, an E-commerce shop owner
“Write Hard. Amanda’s course for writers offers decades of wisdom distilled into jewels of wisdom. Each session builds effortlessly on each other, but what I liked most about the experience was the holistic approach the course took. If writing was as easy as just following a process than all of us would just write effortlessly. What the Write Hard course offers are the understanding and tools we need to work through our own “hard” stuff. By leaning into the hard parts of our story we are able to find the flow that was being blocked. I highly recommend the Write Hard course to anyone who is ready to get real with their own writing and start the journey of embracing their own voice.” Diana Henderson, business owner, photographer and authentic brand consultant.
