Getting it Write: Overcoming Writing Procrastination

Most people procrastinate when it comes to writing at least some times--but why? This workshop will explore the personal and academic cultural reasons why graduate students procrastinate. Then, we will explore research-based motivation and goal-setting methods to overcome writing procrastination.

Lunch will not be provided as part of this workshop, but feel free to bring your own.

*Although anyone may register, this event will be most useful to students in engineering and the natural sciences.
