Tara GrayPublish and Flourish 15th Anniversary editionWriting daily in short bursts of time (at least 15-30 minutes) helps get ideas on paper. A hundred scholars were studied who succeeded in writing 30 minutes a day, four days a week. They tripled their productivity from finishing two manuscripts per year to nearly six. But how to get started and stick with it? This webinar will show you how.

You can also greatly enhance your productivity by free writing or writing rapidly without self-censorship and without revising as you write. Free writing is casual, conversational, spontaneous, disorganized and clear only to you (if that). It is also fun to write! Nonetheless, important ideas emerge that can be easily shaped into a full paper. In this one-hour webinar, presented by Tara Gray, author of Publish & Flourish: Become a Prolific Scholar, you will learn how to use these two writing strategies to increase your writing productivity.

Tara Gray serves as the first director of the teaching Academy at New Mexico State University, where criminal justice is her tenure home.
Dr. Gray has published fifty scholarly works, including four books. She has presented workshops on her book, Publish & Flourish, to 10,000 participants at more than 120 venues, in 35 states, and in seven countries. Workshop participants report that Dr. Gray is “spirited, entertaining, and informative—she’s anything but gray!”

Organization is the skeleton of a manuscript, its very structure. Get it right and the manuscript works. Get it wrong and it doesn’t. In this one-hour webinar, presented by Tara Gray, author of Publish & Flourish: Become a Prolific Scholar, you will learn how to organize paragraphs around key or topic sentences and how to organize manuscripts around an “after-the-fact” or “reverse” outline. You will also learn how to solicit and use informal feedback effectively by asking just the right readers for feedback and by asking specific questions, such as, “What one place in the manuscript is least clear? Least organized? Least persuasive?
