Spring 2022 Workshops

Clearing the Decks
Friday, April 8, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm | online

Clean out the mental and physical clutter that is preventing you from making and attaining your writing goals. Based on one of the steps in Leo Babauta’s Zen to Done, this workshop will help you define what is important, help you manage your inboxes, and get your workload to a manageable place and pace so you have space for your research and writing. This is an active workshop—the goal is for you to have a clear desk and inbox by the end of the workshop.
