Find Your Purpose, Reconnect with Your Writing with Michelle Thompson

About This Event

As spring semester winds down, it's time to reconnect with our passion as writers. COVID-19 continues to fundamentally reorganize our lives and impact research: many of us are burned out, professionally and personally, and feel scattered, overwhelmed, or disconnected from our writing.

This workshop (9am to 12pm: May 6, 2022) provides some structured time to: reflect on and recenter your purpose; align your writing practices and larger goals; and prioritize writing needs without resorting to binge-bust writing cycles that only further deplete your resources. In addition to addressing sustainable writing habits, writing prompts will help participants turn to their summer research in a purpose-driven, realistic way that recognizes what is doable in the present.

Michelle Thompson (Resistant Vision) also presents "Tools for Tackling Imposter Syndrome" on April 29.

Please complete this optional pre-workshop survey. All information will be kept confidential.

Note: If you have registered for the first workshop with Michelle Thompson, you need to only complete the survey questions once, as they are the same for both workshops.

CART provided. Contact by April 27, 2022 to request additional accommodations.

Hosted by the Corridor Futures and Initiatives (HF4) Working Group of the CNY Humanities Corridor, with additional support from the Syracuse University's Office of Research and College of Arts & Sciences.
