Workshop themes...

CLOCKWORK MUSE offerings explore scheduling for inspired scholarly writing. The title refers to Eviatar Zerubavel's Clockwork Muse. (TIME, MOMENTUM)

ACADEMIC SYLE offerings consider "the art of summary," jargonitis (chronic & overuse of jargon), qualities of "stinky" academic writing,  elements of stylish academic writing, and tools for English Language Learners (STYLE)

SPECIAL TOPICS offerings include guest speakers and panels who present on such topics as: Women in Academe, "Myths We Stall By," "Becoming a Public Scholar," "Sitting Down to Write Mindfully" and more (SPACE, TIME, MOMENTUM, STYLE)
