Article Writing Workshop (online)

Dear followers,
Here is a first draft of the marketing materials for the workshop I am going to conduct this summer through the wonderful Taos institute (we confirmed it just this morning, yay!) . We will probably make some changes to some of the language here, but this gives you an idea of what I will be doing. Please note- for the $300 fee, you also get two free coaching sessions. So, this is a pretty good deal (if I do say so myself!). The last workshop filled up pretty fast, so if your interested, I would sign up ASAP. Here is the website and registration link!

Title: Mastering the Academic Article
Facilitated by Rich Furman

Dates: July 18th- August 12, 2016 (with some orientation work the previous week)

This four-week, online workshop teaches scholars the tools they need to successfully write and publish scholarly articles. It adopts a strengths-based, developmental approach that deconstructs evidence-based strategies unknown to most scholars. Conducted by an internationally known writing coach, therapist and professor, participants develop the capacity to more effectively craft articles through extensive video lectures, writing exercises, online discussions and weekly calls with learning partners. All participants will receive two coaching sessions with the facilitator as part of the workshops.
