How to make a writing plan: A Writeout! Workshop

Writing Counselor: Michelle Boyd

When: September 11, 2014 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where: Illinois A, Student Center East, 750 S. Halsted Street

Series:  WriteOut!

Do you struggle to find time to write? Start the semester with seemingly reasonable writing goals but find yourself unable to meet them?
Do youget overwhelmed by mid-semester and stop writing? Then feel frustrated and embarrassed at the end of the semester?

If so, then please join us for this hands-on workshop, designed to help you write regularly and make progress on your writing projects.
In this workshop you will:


 1. Set realistic writing goals for the semester
 2. Map out a concrete plan for the completion of those goals, and
 3. Create a strategy for managing unexpected events and tasks


This workshop, led by WriteOut! Writing Coach and UIC Associate Professor Michelle Boyd, is for any graduate student, staff member,
or faculty member from any discipline who wants to make progress on their writing projects. It will be especially useful for those who
have recently completed the WriteOut! Dissertation Writing Retreat.

In response to your feedback during the last workshop, this session will have:

  * Better Orientation: pre-workshop instructions to get you ready to write your plan
  * More Time: so that you can actually complete your plan
  * Better Layout: tables so that you have room to write comfortable
  * Small Group Interaction: opportunities to share your plans with each other and get feedback from Michelle

"How to Make a Writing Plan" is Free and open to all, but registration is required. Please email Ryan Viloria by September 8 to secure your spot.
