Writing for Procrastinators

All Levels | If you consider yourself a writer, proclaim to love writing, but find a million things to do before you “let” yourself write, then this seminar is for you. We will explore reasons for, strategies to overcome, and even the benefits of procrastination. We will discuss both the psychology of why we procrastinate and authors who have overcome this tendency or learned to work with it. Students at all levels will leave with strategies to navigate their own procrastination.
