In this one-hour workshop, international writing expert Helen Sword will draw on findings from her current book project - a study of the social, physical, aesthetic, creative, and emotional dimensions of academic writing - to show how you can write your way into a more pleasurable, fulfilling, and life-affirming "SPACE of Writing."
