ProWritingAid Events For Writers

ProWritingAid Presents: How to Build a Joyful Academic Writing Practice with Social Writing

Are you having trouble making space for writing in the midst of pandemic life? Do you feel guilty for not being more productive when it seems you have more time to write?

This workshop describes how writers can reconnect with their writing without guilt, shame, or coercion.

Participants will learn: - how sheltering-in-place actually makes writing more difficult, not less - why focusing on productivity is counterproductive - an easy, healthy, pandemic-friendly way to boost your motivation for writing
