Hybrid Pedagogy’s Jesse Stommel and our very own Charlotte Frost rethink academic life and writing productivity in this on-going series of hints, tips and hacks.

This sounds obvious but it is easy to forget when you’re stressed about deadlines, doing a good job, and all the other things you’re trying to juggle. It’s not enough to just research the subject you’re writing about, you need to know as much as possible about how to write that article, the audience for it, and the ways it will be evaluated. So think around every task and know that you’ve got it covered from all angles. Feeling stressed and over-stretched? Try out this tip instead.
