I am pleased to announce I will be teaching a five-week class through Stanford’s Continuing Education Program beginning on September 26, 2011 entitled: “Overcoming Writing Blocks and Procrastination.” Registration begins on August 22.
This class will be limited to 30 participants and take place on five consecutive Monday nights at Stanford’s campus. The aim of the class is to assist adult students with their specific writing challenges by offering information, support, exercises, discussion, and readings that address writing productivity problems. The class will be concerned with the process of writing, not the content, and therefore is appropriate for writers of all types including those who do fiction, non-fiction, poetry, business writing, scientific research, academic research, grant-writing, journalism, blogging, etc.
I’ve taught this class several times before and it is one of my most enjoyable and gratifying professional activities. We have a good time and students learn they are not alone and that their issues are not hopeless. Tools are provided that will be useful in an ongoing way.
Some people who are interested will procrastinate and miss the registration deadline. If you turn out to be one of those, maybe I’ll meet you next year.
