What Sponsors Say


“Your grant and journal writing workshop for my faculty hit it out of the park!”

• Teresa Gammill

Associate Vice President for Research

Mississippi State University

“Your workshop on scholarly writing hit a home run with my faculty… An award-winning psychology professor told me that, after the workshop, she was astounded at her writing productivity. She called your workshop ‘a life-changing experience’… In one day, you made a genuine difference at this university. We will be more productive and better writers for the rest of our careers.”

• Linda Nilson


Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation

Clemson University

“Tara’s scholarship workshop touched a real nerve for our busy faculty with a 4-4 teaching load. One testimony of the efficacy of her program is that we are still meeting to discuss drafts of our work–two years after her workshop!”

• Thomas P. Murphy

Associate Professor of English

Director, Center for Effective Teaching

Mansfield University

“I feel you are exactly the RIGHT person to be talking to colleagues (apprehensive ones, by self-selection) about writing because you use accessible language that everyone can identify with… I applaud you! I am equally entranced by your PowerPoint™ presentation style, your ability to make your message lively, your self-revealing anecdotes, the great quotes.… It is all nicely done, a real polished act.”

• Suzanne Buker

Communication Studies

New Mexico State University

“Your teaching, time management, and scholarship workshops were a phenomenal hit! Faculty were completely engaged and are still talking about how much value they received. I found that you gave tips and advice that other workshops I’ve taken did not include and those tips and advice were invaluable.”

Distinguished Professor of Urban Entrepreneurship & Former Dean

Saunders College of Business

“One of our new professors was looking for ways to improve his teaching and came to your teaching workshop. The following year, when I complimented him on his over-the-top teaching evaluations, he told me he had applied all the advice from your workshop!”

• Becky Glass
