Ways into Writing: Easy (and Fun) Strategies for Unleashing Your Ideas

Do you freeze up when confronting a blank screen? Do you get stuck in the middle of a draft or when trying to revise? You’re not alone! This workshop will teach strategies for moving past writer’s block, generating ideas, organizing your thoughts, and taking your draft to the next level during the revision process. Strategies we will explore include mind mapping, diagramming, freewriting, using speech-to-text tools, envisioning alternate audiences, and even drawing. There is no right or wrong way to engage with writing—our emphasis will be on finding strategies that work for your own learning needs! If you are currently working on or about to start a writing project, please bring your materials to the workshop.
