Workshop | Publish & Flourish: Become a Prolific Scholar
Presenter: Tara Gray, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice, Founding Director, Teaching Academy, New Mexico State University
Many scholarly writers are educated at the School of Hard Knocks, but it’s not the only school, or even the best. Much is known about how to become a better, more prolific scholar and these steps can show you how:
Polish and Publish
Participants bring a rough draft of their own writing to the workshop and learn a technique for getting meaningful feedback from others. Participants receive ongoing feedback by joining the writing circles that are established.
What previous participants have said about Tara's workshops:
“Your methods changed my writing life. For the four years before the workshop, I wrote or revised 44 pages a year, but in the four years after, I wrote or revised 220 pages per year—five times as much!”
“Awesome! If I put one-quarter of what you said to use, it will increase my productivity exponentially!”
