Tara Gray serves as an associate professor of criminal justice and director of the Teaching Academy at New Mexico State University.  She has used these steps to publish three books, including Publish & Flourish: Become a Prolific Scholar.  She has presented workshops to more than 5,000 scholars in thirty of the United States, and in Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.  As a workshop presenter, Dr. Gray is "spirited, informative and entertaining—she's anything but gray!"

The myth persists that prolific scholars are born not made, but research suggests otherwise.  Much is known about the steps you can take to become prolific:

·         Write daily for 15-30 minutes

·         Organize around key sentences

·         Solicit the right feedback from the right colleagues

What participants say:

“I tried these steps on a paper I had been trying to put together for five years. Four weeks later the paper is out for review.”         

“Internalizing these steps has caused my productivity to quadruple.”
