Online (MS Teams)
Time

If productivity is something you struggle with, you are not alone and the good news is - this workshop can help! Inspired by the book ‘Turbocharge your writing’ (written by Maria Gardiner and Hugh Kearns), this workshop provides an overview of practical strategies you can adopt to maximise your writing productivity.

Together, we will explore:

  • Why it is difficult to put pen to paper
  • How we deliberately make excuses to avoid writing
  • How to set realistic writing plans and goals
