Workshop Description:

Whether you're writing a dissertation or a research paper, it can be challenging to stay motivated in uncertain times. This cross-disciplinary workshop will begin with goal setting and move through strategies and behaviors to assist you to dedicate yourself to your writing project. The workshop will include getting the most out of Mendeley or Zotero, using Freedom and other time management tools, and alternative writing and planning platforms, such as Scrivner, Jamboard, and the Kindle app. You'll walk away with a plan for writing more in less time, and behavioral patterns you can apply to your future writing projects. Come ready with your writing goals and materials from a current project you're ready to conquer.

 Workshop is led by Katherine Rothschild, MFA, PhD, a published fiction writer whose claim to fame is finishing and defending a research dissertation in eleven months.
