They announced today that they are hosting a free virtual teleconference, "How Academia Messes With Your Mind And What To Do About It" which starts tomorrow, May 21 and runs through Friday May 23. There will be four Interviews or talks on each of the three days of the event.

This virtual teleconference will be held online and on the phone. The goal of "How Academia Messes With Your Mind And What To Do About It" is to make academics aware of the dysfunction that exists in academia, and learn strategies for coping with it and thriving despite the difficulties they encounter.

"These 12 interviews and talks with experts on higher education will help professors and graduate students navigate past the numerous roadblocks that academia puts in their way," said Hiatt. "We all know that academia messes with your mind, especially at the higher levels. But it's seldom discussed. My goal is to bring these issues to the light of day and help people see that they are not alone with their struggles."

Hiatt added that a bonus for registering for this telesummit is that all registrants will receive a coupon for 50% off the next session of the Academic Writing Club, which starts May 26. "Becoming and remaining a productive writer is very difficult in academia. We believe that most academics need coaching, accountability and support to achieve ongoing writing productivity. That is why I developed this innovative membership site for academics."
