Have you ever struggled with meeting your writing goals? Has getting your project to publication seemed like an insurmountable task? In this panel session, successful scholars will discuss how they developed their own writing process and provide advice on how to successfully meet writing goals. At the end of this session, participants will be able to describe how and why barriers to writing occur, reflect on their own experiences with the writing process, and identify strategies for developing a successful writing process within their own research and in collaborations.
Learning Objectives:  At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe how and why barriers to writing occur
  2. Identify barriers in their own experiences with the writing process, in their own research, and in collaboration
  3. Identify strategies for developing a successful writing process with their own research
Target Audience: This program is designed for faculty, staff, preceptors, post-graduate trainees, and students who conduct research and would like to turn their results into publication.
Registration:  For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00.  (UNC Affiliates are considered to be faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)
