Building A Publishing Pipeline: Concrete Strategies for
Increasing Your Writing Productivity
Facilitator: Erin Marie Furtak, PhD
To be maximally productive in academic life, we all need to produce a steady stream of publications; but how can we keep multiple writing projects moving ahead simultaneously when they are all in various states of completion? This webinar, based on Erin Marie Furtak's "Productivity Pipeline" column from the Chronicle of Higher Education, we will work together to conceptualize your writing projects as a pipeline, and then will complete a series of activities in which you’ll list your planned and active writing projects, assign them to categories in the pipeline, and then make a concrete action plan for moving forward with several of the projects at the same time.
Be sure to read Professor Furtak's article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, "My Writing Productivity Pipeline."
