Writing and writing isolation are challenges faced by many students, ones that can result in writing avoidance and ‘writer’s block’. This hands-on workshop will examine how to produce concrete writing results by structuring writing space and time effectively. Students will write part of an academic assignment during their workshop, and thus must bring a writing assignment and their preferred writing method (whether electronic or paper) to the workshop.

Organizer: Dr. Susan Hopkirk, Academic Success Centre
