July 11th Golden Day

Golden Day

The light at the end of the PhD tunnel is drawing near-- and Golden Days are here to help kick things into high gear.

Golden Days offer a work-conducive environment to help optimize focus and productivity. We work in structured writing blocks to hold focus until the next mental break.

Who is it for?
This is designed for PhDs during various stages of the writing process: from pre-writing to final edits.

What can you expect?
This is an all-day event with structured writing blocks to help you focus. Here you will start the day with goal setting and then be given a structured program to work in productive writing blocks. As Writer’s Studio Trainer I will also be on hand to answer any questions or schedule one-on-ones.

And of course, no writing would be made possible without some coffee, tea, and snacks for fuel, which will be provided.
