Podcast - tips and tricks on homeworking

Strategies on organization, workspace arrangement and negotiating care responsibilities

When homeworking, one sometimes has to be creative... Even a child's toy can prove a valuable resource when figuring out where to set up the microphone! Welcome to a brand new series on Authors' Update. In these podcasts, we'll be examining issues and discussing phenomena that relate to the author community as well as trying to answer some of your frequently-asked questions. We're beginning the series during a time of global uncertainty so our first topic is a little different, but we hope that you will find the content useful. If you have any ideas for further casts, do get in touch via the comments below. And don't forget to subscribe!

In this episode, we look at some strategies for successful homeworking including how to organize your day, set up your workspace and negotiate with other family members.
