Our Psygentra Learner Membership is for those who are interested in learning more about psychology, gender, and trauma. It includes access to more comprehensive and detailed blog posts and articles, as well as our weekly virtual Writing Support Group. New content is added regularly, so sign up to make sure you have access!
Writing Support Group
The Psygentra Learner Membership includes access to our weekly virtual Writing Support Group.
Writing can be an important part of academic work, activist labour, and personal and community healing. Yet we often don't have much time to dedicate to the task - despite the demand to constantly be producing written work. Whether it is online content for educating and advocating on social media or blog posts, to publications and grants to keep your job, it can seem like people want the writing but don't value the time needed to create it.
So we encourage you to protect your writing time, place boundaries around it, create your own rituals and space that put you in the best place and mindset to create. Because it doesn't matter if you're writing a grant proposal or a poem, how those words come together and what the message is will be unique to you and requires creativity.
We meet weekly and share what we would like to do with our protected writing time. This isn't about setting goals and targets, but enjoying having a space to think, reflect, read, and write - without pressure. We promote slow scholarship and crip time at psygentra, so find the joy in your work again with us. Write with and for pleasure, here.
The Writing Support Group is currently on pause until mid-September.
The Writing Support Group is an online group and attendees are sent a Zoom link prior to each session.
