Peg Boyle Single has worked with faculty members and doctoral students for over 15 years. During this time, she has developed a system that demystifies dissertation writing and advising and that helps doctoral students and faculty members increase their writing fluency, productivity, and enjoyment.

But if you think her speaking, or writing, about academic writing has to be boring, think again. Dr. Single presents practical advice on academic writing in a motivational tone and infuses it with a healthy dose of humor.
