Retreat hosts Professor Rowena Murray and Dr Natalie Lancer offer strategies to rekindle the joy in your academic writing.
Do you need to rekindle the love of writing?
Does thinking about writing your chapter or paper fill you with dread?
Is writing something you put off to avoid the pain?
Professor Rowena Murray and Natalie Lancer get to the nub of these issues. Join them for an informal evening, full of writing tips to bring the joy back in to your work. They will be talking about:
The joy of privileging writing over everything else – what that means and how we do it.
The joy of just writing – not doing several things at once, as writing is itself doing several things at once.
Why it is motivating to have specific writing goals and to achieve them.
The joy of writing with others – productive talk and productive silence.
The joy of ‘discipline’ – fixed times and proper breaks.
The joy of doing intellectual work.
