Apply for a One-Hour Editing or Coaching Session

Need help with a writing project? TAA members can apply to receive a one-hour editing or coaching session from one of our professional editor or coach partners. 


September 30 October 11
October 31 November 8
November 30 December 13
December 31 January 10

You can accomplish a lot in one hour! Get a partial copyedit or developmental edit of several pages of your academic journal article or book chapter, or receive one-on-one coaching to help you over a hurdle with your project.

"In a one hour coaching session, you can develop a full project management work plan for a book, textbook, or article; revise a problematic section or two of an article or chapter; receive feedback on a drafted book proposal or walk through how to write an effective proposal; and more!" - Christine Tulley, Defend&Publish

"I think this is a terrific program, especially for individuals like myself who are in their early careers and need to write and publish. Dr. Sterne was excellent and thorough with her feedback. She spent time explaining all her suggested corrections and recommending ways to improve my manuscript. I am very excited about her enthusiasm and encouragement towards getting my paper published." - Andrea McDonald, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Prairie View A&M, recipient of a September coaching session
