To kick off the summer, we will meet to discuss a challenge posed to the group - producing a full draft of a paper over in 6 weeks or less. We will meet to discuss the details of the challenge, current projects we are working on, and references that should prove helpful to those who participate. The structure of this challenge has been drawn fromPaul Silvia’s “How to write a lot” and William Zinsser’s “Writing to Learn”. I highly recommend reading these two books if you wish to gain a better understanding on how to implement effective writing strategies.
