The ethos behind the Academic Writing Studio is that in order to produce the publications that will communicate your knowledge to those who need it and serve as evidence in the various processes that evaluate and reward you, you need to incorporate writing into your regular working habits. You need a writing practice.
People vary. What works for your best friend or your successful colleague won’t necessarily work for you. Your situation also changes both throughout the academic year and over longer periods of time.
The changes to your work in response to the pandemic will also have affected your writing practice. This academic year isn’t going to look the same as previous years. This class will help you think through what you writing practice might look like under your current conditions.
This class guides you through a process of reflecting on what’s working, identifying what’s frustrating you, and figuring out how to address one of the frustrations to make your practice work better. I always encourage you to think about the specifics of the time of year or other circumstances that affect what is possible. The class includes opportunities to share strategies and get coaching from me to help you figure out what might work best for you.

This class is based on principles outlined by Robert Fritz in The Path of Least Resistance as I learned them through classes I took with Jennifer Hofmann through The Creative Haven (no longer in existence).
