"I had the great good fortune to work with Naveed at the American Medical Student Association. As contributing writer to the magazine, The New Physician, Naveed produced superb content that engaged and inspired our readers and our staff.

Smart, personable, thorough, and engaging are just a few qualities that will impress you about Naveed. I was so impressed with him when he led the entire AMSA staff in a writing workshop. To this day, I still use his tip sheets and words of wisdom about effective writing.

Naveed is now the successful author of The Complete Guide to Article Writing, and again I'm a huge fan. Naveed teaches and guides in a style that is easy to understand and apply. He takes the intimidation of the blank page away.
