At TWU , Dr. King will be facilitating an advanced workshop entitled,  “Discovering How to Deliver What Editors and Publishers Need: Demystifying the Academic Writing and Publishing Process.”
In this session, she pulls back the curtain on the sometimes mystifying process of publishing. Dr. King provides a practical, dynamic, and interactive workshop focused on improving faculty writing and publication rates.

“Kathy” is uniquely qualified to reveal the key strategies needed due to her 15+ years as a journal and book editor, faculty coach, faculty development expert, and professor of doctoral students. This revelation-packed workshop not only includes specific insights, strategies, and approaches, but also guides participants to address their productivity needs with new understanding and goals.
