This week we are talking to Lisa Munro who specialises in helping academic writers through writing retreats, workshops, coaching, and editing. 

Lisa talks about her journey into and through her PhD.  She also discusses how this led to her current work and business.

We discuss how to avoid the shame and fear that writing can bring up and to look to cultivate joyful writing practices instead.

Lisa talks about the power of writing with others and about her ‘shut up and write’ sessions.  She also reflects on the importance of celebrating achievements.

Lisa’s top tip is to see writing as a practice rather than an event and suggests strategies fo development.
