The Writing Workshop Series: Goal Setting aims to teach students how to move from ideas to reality by crafting better goals, then achieving those goals. Participants will learn how to break an idea into smaller pieces, create a timeline, and then stick with the goals until they are finished! During this session, Owen Williams and Elizabeth Bernhardt from the Graduate and Professional Writing Consultation (GPWC) and Lorena O’English from WSU Libraries will share strategies and ideas on moving from planning to achievements, in addition to facilitating discussion and hands-on practice. .
