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.
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.
Collaborative Writing: Simple Rules
APR 12, 12-12:50pm
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).
