I am Dr. Vernetta K. Mosley, but I go by Dr. V.

This course is especially dear to me because it gives me the opportunity to prepare masters and doctoral students for their graduate programs.

As an editor and writing coach, I work with countless late-stage graduate students and faculty members who never learned the writing skills they needed early on, so they are paying for it now...literally!

If you don't consider yourself a writer, this course is perfect for you because I delve into the foundational skills you need to write well.

Let me equip you with a graduate school writing starter kit. If you want to add more tools, check out my other courses.

Here is my education:

  • BA, Journalism and Mass Communication, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • MA, English, North Carolina A&T State University
  • PhD, English University of South Florida
