Join IRRPP’s Deana Lewis for a conversation with writing coach and former UIC professor, Michelle R. Boyd, focused on helping scholars go from "stuck" to "unstuck" in their writing processes. Dr. Boyd is one of the co-founders of IRRPP’s WriteOut! writing retreats and has coached and mentored hundreds of writers. By working to understand and overcome writing anxieties, Dr. Boyd supports scholars to uncover their unique writing process and design a writing practice that fits how they work.

This is a hybrid event. For those joining us in person, please note that we are requiring masks at the Library space. For those that choose to join us online, we will send you a link to the webinar the day before the event.

Please email us at with access needs or questions.

About the Series: IRRPP's Faculty Development Program and Emerging Scholars Program supports UIC faculty and graduate students who are doing research on race/ethnicity that has the potential to contribute to policy conversations and actions. In addition to material support, these programs also provide workshops throughout the year to develop faculty and graduate student capacity for policy and public engagement, to foster a strong writing practice, and to shape ongoing research projects.
