Writing, Procrastination and Resistance: How to identify your writing blocks and move through them


Thursday, January 5, 2023


12:00pm - 2:00pm




Do you keep putting off your writing and waiting for large blocks of uninterrupted time to get it done? Do you regularly engage in procrastination and avoidance when it comes to your writing projects? Have you ever wondered why it is that you really want to write, but just don’t do it until there’s a looming external deadline? 

In this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of: 

  • What resistance is and why academic writers experience it in pursuit of work they want and need to complete 
  • How to identify what’s holding them back from writing and completing their article, dissertation, book manuscript, grant proposal, etc… 
  • The three most common types of writing blocks and how to move around them 
  • How to create the types of community, support, and accountability needed for writing and publishing success
