Making Writing Easier

Who is this workshop for?  Researchers who are struggling with writing manuscripts, grants, research program descriptions for applications, scholarships or thesis. What is this workshop about?  Researchers tell me that writing is hard. They are overwhelmed by our ideas, unsure where to start, and feel lost at times. Melissa E Anders has been developing and implementing grants with scientists for more than 15 years and she has a deep curiosity and understanding about human nature and how we can harness our true selves. It is at this intersection that she draws from to support researchers in making writing easier. In this [...]
