  1. I contacted you some years back for permission to use your white paper on thesis statements in my high school classroom and received it (thank you). I have been using your method with success ever since. I am about to cite it from your weblog in my masters’ final, with APA and acknowledgement at Pitt. Do you have any problem with this> Sorry I cannot find your email address

  2. I am hoping it is acceptable to use your papers as supplemental reading for the Presentational Speaking class I am teaching this summer. Marjorie Brody’s SPEAKING YOUR WAY TO THE TOP is very informative but does not give the type of specialized informationyou do to complete the SLO’s of our college, Baker College of Muskegon. Thank you,

  3. Good evening Professor Jerz,

    I just read your article, “Should a Journalist Covering Rocky Horror Live Attend the Show in Drag?” on I noticed one small background fact in your article that you may want to correct: “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” was based on the stage play “The Rocky Horror Show,” not the other way around, as you have it. However, the audience participation you mention, did originate with the movie and has been incorporated into latter productions of the live show.

    Also, I do agree with the advice you gave your student to “dress in drag if they wanted to,” but I would make sure you emphasize that they should only go in drag or costume if that is part of their personality. If they go dressed up, and it’s not really who they are, they will probably be very distracted by how uncomfortable they are and not be able to report the story through a clear lens.


  4. Hi there Dennis,

    Wow, I *love* your citation builder! However, I’m having a little trouble understanding some of the terminology regarding web pages. Would you kindly answer the following quick questions for me (for all of us, actually)?

    re: “Author” and “Publisher”
    What is the difference between these two?
    Where would I typically find the Author?
    Where would I typically find the Publisher?

    re: “Title of the Page” and its “Label”
    What is the difference between these two?
    Where would I typically find the Title of the Page?
    Where would I typically find its Label?

    re: the “Date” and the “Accessed (date)”
    What is the difference between these two?
    Where would I typically find the Date?
    Where would I typically find the Accessed (date)?

    Thanks so much for your assistance Dennis, and have a great day!

    • Did you click on the words such as “Author” and “Publisher” and read the 3-4 paragraphs with examples that should appear on the right of the screen? If you find any of that explanation confusing or insufficient, please let me know.

  5. Thank you. This blog is great! Instructional and inspiring. As a 40-something man coming back home with 12,000 pictures from world travel, I couldn’t figure out how to put my experiences in short, concise stories. You’ve started me down the road to writing success.
