I recently published a new article on how to embrace academic seasonality to get your projects done.

One of the supreme pleasures of academic, altac (alternative academic), or academic-adjacent careers is the relatively predictable schedule that allows us to plan out and complete giant, complex projects like books, dissertations, event series, and podcasts.

For instance, most academics spend much of their summer writing because they know they’ll have less time during the school year to devote to research and publishing.

Even if you have a favorite or a not-so-favorite part of the year, embracing the seasonality of academic life can mean more creativity, productivity, and inspiration for those projects while also helping you prioritize self-care and avoid burnout.
