Writing & Publishing Links

If you are looking for writing resources for my classes, I would encourage you to first review the Writing Resources and Academic and Scholarly Writing Videos pages on this website. Some the resources below are also listed on the Writing Resources page; however, additional resources are available here.

Publication Resources

Grammar Resources

Grammar Girl
Grammar Girl is a great resource for grammar questions.


We dishonor those early influential thinkers in our movement when we turn them into idols. We distort the message they were bringing to us and the message they lived in their lives. I believe (and hope) that if these figures were around today that their harshest critiques would be of the way we over-revere their contributions. We love and honor our heroes when we recognize their humanity. To be revered as an idol or infallible scholar is much less of an honor than to be revered as a human who within all the limitations of being human rose to contribute a unique voice and make an important, though imperfect, contribution worthy of a lasting influence on the history of humankind.
