The next live webinar starts soon!
Why did you create this webinar series?
There’s nothing I like more than talking about writing and publishing with other academics. The how to: academia writing and publishing webinar series is just that: regular conversations about all different aspects of the academic publishing process.
This is the series I wish I had when I was just starting out and trying to learn the ropes of organizing edited collections, writing book proposals, and promoting my books. Now that I’m an experienced academic writer, I hope this series will help me build community with other academic writers.
What kind of experience do you have with academic writing and publishing?
Great question! I’ve been actively publishing in academic journals for the last seven years. I also currently serve as the associate editor for The International Journal for Academic Development.
In 2014, I published my first book based on my dissertation. In 2016, I published my second book, written while I was working as a full-time higher education administrator. I’m on track to publish my third book in 2018, which was also written while I was working full-time as a researcher at Oregon State University. I’m in the process of pitching my fourth book, to be written with two co-authors.
In the past several years, I have also published two edited collections, one co-edited with a colleague. I am in the process of finalizing two additional edited collections for publication in 2018, one also co-edited with a colleague.
In my current role as research director for Ecampus at Oregon State University, I draft research designs, reports, grant applications, and academic articles on a regular basis.
Lastly, I currently serve as a series editor for the forthcoming Thrive Online series from Stylus publishing, where I assist with the publication of three books for the series each year. In this role, I also serve as a coach and supporter for the authors in the series and also recruit new authors for the series as needed.

How do the webinars work?
Once you’ve purchased the webinar package of your choice (more on that below), I’ll email you with additional information about how to access the live session(s).
I’ll be sending out reminders for each of the webinars one week and one day in advance so that you’ll always know when the webinar you purchased is coming up.
You will also receive the webinar materials via email in advance of the presentation so that you can review them and come with any questions that you have.
Lastly, you’ll have the option of submitting topic-specific questions in advance of the webinars via email.
Each webinar purchase also comes with access to a course where the webinar re-plays and resources will be housed for your viewing after the live presentation has finished.
Once I've made a purchase, how do I login to where the webinar re-plays are housed?
The webinar re-replays and bonus materials are housed on a course site that you registered a username and password with when you purchased (for institutional or group members, this is where you put in your discount code).
For people who purchased the series, you login here: http://writing.howtoacademia.com/login
For people who purchased individual webinars, you login here for each month:
How long are the webinars?
The webinars will each include 45 minutes of interactive presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
Each webinar is repeated twice (at 9am and 11am PT), so you can choose which time is most convenient for you to attend.
If you miss the live session, the re-play will be made available later that day for you to watch whenever you want.
Have you facilitated webinars before?
Absolutely. In addition to the many webinars I hosted for my recent virtual book tour, I also facilitate regular webinars for my work at Oregon State University.
Many of the webinars are also versions of face-to-face workshops that I’ve facilitated at campuses all over the country.
What are the purchasing options?
You can choose to purchase just the webinar topics of most interest to you, buy individual webinars for a group, buy the whole series for yourself, or purchase the institutional membership.
Learn more about the different pricing options for the webinars.
I can't afford the webinars. Is there a discount available?
I’ve tried to make the webinars as affordable as possible so that anyone interested can join in the fun. If you’re looking for a discount, check out my newsletter (available at my professional website), the Anatomy of a Book podcast, or the You’ve Got This podcast, where I’ve been sharing discount codes with my readers and listeners.
If I purchase for a group, do you help with marketing?
Yes. If you purchase an individual webinar for a group or the institutional membership, you will receive access to a folder of marketing materials, including logos for the series, webinar titles and descriptions, my head shot, and more. Everyone who signs up for the webinar(s) with your institutional code will also receive a one-week and a one-day reminder about the webinar(s) you purchased.
Where did the series purchase and institutional membership options go?
The series purchase and institutional membership option were only available through September 15, 2017 (or one week before the series started). Now you have the option to purchase the webinars individually for yourself or for a group.
I have additional questions. How do I contact you?
