In this book Dr. Dannelle D. Stevens offers five key principles that will bolster your knowledge of academic writing, enable you to develop a manageable, sustainable and even enjoyable writing practice, and, in the process, effectively increase your publication output and promote your academic career.

A successful and productive book and journal article author, writing coach, the creator of a nationally-recognized, cross-disciplinary faculty writing program, and with a long career as a faculty member and experience as a department chair, Dannelle offers a unique combination of motivation, reflective practices, analytical tools, templates and advice to set you on the path to being a productive and creative writer.

Drawing on her experience as a writer, and on her extensive research into the psychology of writing and the craft of scholarly writing, Dannelle starts from the premise that most faculty have never been taught to write, and that writers, both experienced and novice, frequently experience anxiety and self-doubt that erode confidence. She begins by guiding readers to understand themselves as writers, and discover what has impeded or stimulated them in the past to establish positive new attitudes and sustainable habits.

Dannelle provides strategies for setting doable goals, organizing a more productive writing life, and demonstrates the benefits of writing groups, including offering a variety of ways in which you can experiment with collaborative practice. In addition, she offers a series of reflections, exercises and activities to spark your writing fluency and creativity.

Whether developing journal articles, book chapters, book proposals, book reviews, or conference proposals, this book will help you demystify the hidden structures and common patterns in academic writing and help you match your manuscript to the language, structures and conventions of your discipline be it in the sciences, social sciences or humanities.

Most importantly, believing that connecting your passions with your work is essential to stimulating your ideas and enthusiasm, this essential guide offers you the knowledge and skills to write more.

"As a first-generation faculty with no professional writing preparation, I've always felt like an impostor. Who would read anything I would write; how could I have anything of value to say? Bearing in mind the Five Key Principles, the practical guidance that will benefit any writer, and the call for self-reflection, writing this book review has helped crystallize my own thinking about writing - an opportunity to turn criticality into self-reflection and improvement. I wish I had this volume before."--Terrel L. Rhodes, Vice President, Office of Quality, Curriculum and Assessment, Executive Director of VALUE, "Association of American Colleges and Universities "
"This book covers it all using a variety of innovative approaches that will appeal greatly to a wide range of readers. There are over 50 tables, charts, drawings, side-bars, and self-assessment exercises that will capture your attention. In addition, the appendices have logs and study-sheets you can fill out as you go along, helping you stay on schedule in your writing. You can dive in almost anywhere and come away with something useful to you at that very moment! Who knew that, even after being an emeritus professor for ten years, I would both want and need to read this book."--Dr. Richard Reis, editor, Tomorrow's Professor eNewsletter
