Writing time is precious. Even without the pandemic stresses and
distractions it's also often either interrupted or wasted at least in part in
procrastination. This workshop is an opportunity to review our own writing
habits; to explore and practise writerly techniques that can help use precious
writing time more efficiently; to set up realistic and imaginative daily
routines; and to analyse when it’s best to ease off and when to press on.
Katie Grant FHEA co-created the Advancing
Academic Writing skills website for the University of Glasgow, where she
was the Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow for three years, helping
undergraduates, Masters and PhD students with their writing. A
columnist, occasional broadcaster, author of ten novels (Sedition,
her latest, is published by Virago), chair of the judges for the Walter
Scott Prize for Historical Fiction and an occasional book reviewer for,
amongst other publications, the New York Times, she runs
writing workshops on improving the quality, reach and impact of academic
writing for all levels of HE. Long experience of the practical,
emotional and organisational challenges of writing for deadlines and for
different audiences informs all her workshops. She understands from
first-hand the value of getting writing done and getting it done well.
