  • Do you often start the semester or term with high hopes for your writing projects, but end disappointed by your actual productivity?
  • Do you desperately want (or need) to write a lot this semester?
  • Do you want to figure out how to be more productive AND enjoy your life this semester?

Take time out of your schedule to identify your personal and professional goals, create a strategic plan to accomplish them, and identify the types of community, support, and accountability you need to make this your most productive and balanced semester ever!
