As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, the importance of clearly communicating ideas and getting scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever.

Dr. Gopen's approach is based on a single idea: Learning to write for the reader allows the writer to control what readers learn. Dr. Gopen's workshops have changed participants' writing habits permanently, often resulting in improved grant writing success. Both junior investigators and experienced scholars/mentors will benefit from this program. Registrants must be able to commit two, full days to this workshop, as each session builds upon the previous one.
