There are plenty of podcasts about writing and a fair number about faculty life, but there's not a lot out there focusing on the particular challenges facing faculty writers. The problem is that in grad school, academics are trained to be scholars and researchers but are rarely trained to be writers. As a result, a surprising number of professors struggle with writing routines that are fraught with uncertainty, inconsistency, and stress.

Stephanie’s podcast is intended to help academics and other writers name their challenges and make adjustments that will allow them to develop sustainable writing habits. In each episode, she dissects one common writing mistake faculty struggle with, then offers proven fixes that can be adapted to serve varied writing routines. The tone of the show is playful but informative, and each episode is brief to allow listeners to gather what they need and get back to work.
