Writing Coach and Accountability Partner
Early Career Faculty and Postdoctoral scholars need support too...
Your dissertation is finished, but you still need to write. Did you secretly wish that your dissertation would be your final scholarly endeavor? Do you appreciate science and research but fear academic writing? Hire me as your accountable writing partner.
You have recently earned your doctoral degree and taken a faculty or postdoctoral position. People feel that a degree confers the ability to impart one's knowledge to the rest of the world. Do you experience Imposter Syndrome? Do you suppose you barely completed your dissertation and must now publish to maintain your job? Completing your doctorate is a tremendous accomplishment, so take a breath. Writing does not have to be a solitary event. If you no longer have access to your previous academic advisor, you may feel awkward expressing your writing difficulties with your new mentor. As a new associate professor or postdoctoral scholar, you may wish to use your professional development money to hire a writing coach to alleviate your stress. Consider hiring a writing coach for stress relief. Consider your publishing objectives. Do you need to publish a journal article or adapt your dissertation into a journal article as a new professor? Your publication strategy will be determined by your individual writing and professional goals.
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness; occasionally everyone needs help.
