Event description
Writing time is precious. It’s also nearly always either interrupted or wasted, at least in part, in procrastination.

About this Event

In this workshop we’ll look squarely at our own writing habits; explore writerly techniques that can help use precious writing time more efficiently; set up realistic daily routines; and analyse when it’s best to ease off and when to press on. By the end of the workshop, you should be better able to:

• understand your own writing strengths and weaknesses

• beat writers’ block

• combat the writing glooms

• use short bursts of time effectively

• set achievable goals

• ignite and fuel the writing spark

.

Katie Grant FHEA co-created the Advancing Academic Writing skills website for the University of Glasgow, where she was the Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow for three years, helping undergraduates, Masters and PhD students with their writing. A columnist, occasional broadcaster, author of ten novels (Sedition, her latest, is published by Virago), on the panel of judges for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction, an occasional book reviewer for, amongst other publications, the New York Times and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, she runs writing workshops on improving the quality, reach and impact of academic writing for all levels of HE. Long experience of the practical, emotional and organisational challenges of writing for deadlines and for different audiences informs all her workshops. She understands from first-hand the value of getting writing done and getting it done well.
