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

Content Lead

Hayley is thrilled to be ProWritingAid's Content Lead, as it gives her an excuse to think deeply about words every single day. Prior to joining ProWritingAid, Hayley spent a number of years as an elementary school teacher, which was a crash course in learning how to entertain an indifferent audience. These days, she puts her storytelling skills to use writing blog articles and working on her first novel.

When Hayley isn't hunched over her keyboard, you can find her figure skating at the ice rink or hiking with her dog.

She is the co-author of the book Museum Hack's Guide to History's Fiercest Females (which was an Amazon bestseller) and How to Build Your Author Platform on a Shoestring.
