Spring semester is here! We know that before the flowers start blooming, the snow has to finish falling—and we also know that before we finish writing, we must begin, build momentum, or get un-stuck. Luckily, CSU Writes has a semester full of offerings intended to help you with your writing, whether it be through workshops, writing sessions, or book club. Here’s what’s on tap for CSU Writes Spring 2022:

Book Club: March 1, 5-6:30pm LSC 322

This semester we will be reading Oliver Burkeman’s Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals. Burkeman, a self-proclaimed “productivity junky,” put productivity into context and helps us realign what we find meaningful with how we focus our attention.

We selected Four Thousand Weeks for this semester’s CSU Writes’ book club because we know that sustainable writing and healthful productivity contribute to a meaningful career and to our wellbeing. Let’s get together to talk about embracing realistic limits and “getting meaningful things done, here and now, in our work and our lives together,”  to quote Oliver Burkeman.
