Writing Under Pressure

Deadlines and demanding audiences can put pressure on writers that can make the actual writing process more difficult, whether you are working in a professional or personal context.  Learn techniques used in the academic environment that help alleviate the stress and pressure that comes with writing timed essay exams and large graded projects with short deadlines.  These techniques will be applicable to any type of deadline-based or time sensitive project.  Topics covered include a grammar review, planning and drafting strategies, addressing your audience appropriately, and using deadlines to map out your timetable for writing.
