Ideas on Fire is heading to the University of California, Berkeley next month to teach a workshop on writing routines for the dissertation, specifically aimed at graduate students in ethnic studies and gender and women’s studies.

How to Rock Your Dissertation: Writing Routines

Are you writing your dissertation but not making the daily progress you (or your advisor) would like? Do you love your work, but struggle to keep up with the never-ending deluge of responsibilities while also building community and practicing self-care?

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll develop a personalized and comprehensive road map for your projects so you know where you’re headed and how to get there.

Additionally, you’ll develop a daily writing plan that allows you to write regularly, meet your goals, and avoid burning out.

This workshop was developed specifically for interdisciplinary, social justice oriented scholars. Come learn the habits and techniques that provide you the spark needed to think, teach, write, and collectively build the world you want. 

Want to bring this workshop to your campus? Drop us a line.
