Title: Strategies for Writing for Publishing


Writing for publication can feel like a challenge for graduate students, yet is a vital part of their professional development. This workshop will cover the process of writing for publication. We will discuss the differences in writing for graduate courses and for publication, as well as approaches for turning research and seminar papers in to journal articles and conference presentations. We will also discuss the practical concerns of writing for publication, such as identifying an appropriate publication for your work, responding to reviewer comments, and revising your work for publication. This workshop will focus on writing in the humanities and social sciences.

2. Learn strategies for turning coursework into research publications.
