Academic Writing Coaching for Women
"As a result of The Feminar, I improved my organization and have implemented a variety of new techniques that helped students feel more invested in their own learning. This also affected my writing because I learned to pace my work and have more realistic expectations about the time and effort involved at each step when preparing for a deadline. During the Feminar, I had three new articles accepted for publication."
I know why you're here. You are a woman in the academy. You started out with a passion and a fire for your discipline. You excelled in your field. You made it through graduate school-- not every step was easy, but you found you enjoyed the work. Then you found a job.
And one day, you wake up to realize you're dreading your writing. You work hard at teaching, you give so much to your students, and you're learning to juggle departmental service responsibilities.
But you haven't worked on your research or writing in a while. Maybe your dissertation lies in a folder on your computer that you rarely open.
And you're starting to feel the effects. You don't just fear what will happen if you don't publish and get tenure, but you quite literally don't feel good anymore.
Maybe you're not sleeping as much-- or you're tired all the time.
Maybe you're nervous that you've lost your "zing" that you used to have about your work -- or you fear you've entered the wrong profession.
Maybe you are dealing with health issues like chronic pain or a recent diagnosis that has left you reeling.
Maybe you feel as if you're having a crisis of faith -- and you're afraid that there isn't anyone who understands this and at the same time would understand what you're going through as an academic.
Let me help you.
