Writing guides

Use the form below to request the writing guides I post here. The guides are short PDF articles, based on instructional material I’ve created for the writing classes I teach at at New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Education.

Guides so far include:

A Better Approach to Outlining. If you’re frustrated with conventional modes of outlining articles prior to writing, the ideas in this guide will be like your first taste of hot peppers when you were young.

Using Road Maps. Are you a psychologist, lawyer, historian, or other academic or professional, eager to bring your message to a wider audience? This guide describes a key technique for successfully making the transition from peer-reviewed journals to writing articles and books for the general public.
