A central component of graduate school is writing papers, theses, and dissertations, among other genres. In fact, there’s no way to graduate without drafting, editing, and revising these major forms of writing. However, many, if not all, graduate students, struggle to produce writing and meet deadlines. How do you write three seminar papers in a single quarter? How do you also write a conference paper or an article on top of that? How do you draft an entire thesis or dissertation over months or years when you are used to drafting and editing papers in a matter of days? Finally, how do you actually hold yourself to deadlines? This workshop will address the challenges of getting the words on the page while also considering your calendar of personal and professional commitments. Topics to be covered include understanding your individual needs as a writer, time management, goal setting, and accountability. Participants should come prepared to discuss their current list of writing projects as well as their average weekly and quarterly schedule.
