FRESH START: Scheduling & AGILE Methods for Writing

JAN 26, 12-12:50pm, ZOOM

FRESH START workshops focus on the science of new beginnings, habit formation, and project planning to help writers return to this semester–and writing–anew. This session introduces writers to planning systems and strategies that help us prioritize writing in our schedules in 2022. Learn, experiment,  and practice with the methods and tools work best for you.

This workshop was recorded Fall 2021.

Write at Speed I: Basics of Drafting Quickly/Editing Slowly

FEB 8, 12-12:50pm

This workshop covers strategies that help writers draft quickly (and edit slowly) to increase overall writing productivity and satisfaction. It will also explore what it takes to “write for speed” regularly so that writers can build momentum on a project over the semester.

Write at Speed II: Advanced Methods & Practice

FEB 16, 12-12:50pm

This workshop covers additional strategies writers can use to draft quickly (and edit slowly) during a writing session and to learn methods that can build writing focus and endurance. Writers should plan to practice writing on a current writing project.

Grant Writing at the Sentence Level

APR 7, 12-1pm (This session was not recorded)

A workshop co-led by Dr, Jeff Wilusz (MIP) and Dr. Kristina Quynn to examine what makes proposalssucceed or fail and why at the sentence-level. 

Collaborative Writing: Simple Rules

APR 12, 12-12:50pm (This session was not recorded)

This workshop provides writers with ten rules that will support their writing with collaborators. We will discuss data management, agreements, timelines, and more in the context of writers coming together to co-produce manuscripts and proposals.

Collaborative Writing II: Writing across Differences

APR 20, 12-12:50pm

This workshop considers the role the differences among writers play in our collaborations. We recognize that our professional and cultural differences can both enrich our writing (process, practices, and products) as well as challenge our assumptions and ways of writing. We will explore writing style awareness, crafting inclusive writing cultures, and strategies for engaging with colleagues across our professional and cultural differences (shaped by race, gender, sexuality, discipline, program, rank, nationality, language, generation, and writing experiences/preferences).
