About the Event

Do you struggle to get your projects written up? Are you someone who has a perfect first paragraph and then gets stuck?  Do you sometimes get challenged by different collaboration styles when writing with others?

Writing is an absolutely critical activity for most academics! If we don't write, we don't publish and we don't succeed. And yet so many of us struggle with writing in a timely and effective manner.

In this webinar, the eighth in the "Small Wins" series, ARC Laureate Fellow Professor Sharon Parker (Curtin University) will provide evidence-based strategies to help you to be more successful in the writing process, addressing topics such as procrastination and writing habits.  She will be joined by two female ARC Laureate Fellows, Professor Adrienne Stone (Melbourne Law School) and Professor Hilary Charlesworth (Melbourne Law School and Australian National University) who will share tips on overcoming writing blocks and improving academic writing skills.

Participants will have the opportunity to virtually share tips with each other, and ask the guests questions.

We hope to see you online!
