University & Publisher Partnerships

Let Us Develop Customized Workshops for Your Writers.

Many university departments don’t have the time or resources to train PhD faculty in dissertation writing strategies. Dissertation advisors don’t have time to support struggling doctoral writers. Hire us to develop custom workshops to support dissertation faculty and students with a workshop on one of these topics below. Workshops can be combined with individual or group coaching sessions for doctoral students and faculty. We can also train your faculty developers!

Publisher Support for Authors, Editors, and Peer Reviewers

Academic publishers spend countless hours on finding manuscript reviewers and sending out revise and resubmit decisions, only to find that authors don’t resubmit or reviewers ask for new revisions. Reviewers often provide unclear or scant feedback

Our customized workshops can help academic publishers on two fronts. We design customized recorded workshops or handouts for authors that can be used as part of an author resource library or develop live offerings for suites of journals based on issues such as responding to a revise and resubmit decision.
