The Augusta University Center for Writing Excellence is hosting a writing workshop titled “From Manuscript to Publication” at 3:30 p.m. July 18. This virtual event is free and open to the public, and is highly recommended for graduate students and early-career academics.
Publishing articles in peer-reviewed, scholarly journals or edited collections is a necessity for many academics, but not many academics talk about the challenges of this process, including how to write a publishable article, where to publish and what stages lead to publication. This 90-minute workshop aims to discuss these obstacles and offer suggestions for overcoming them.
The suggestions come from recent secondary sources on writing for publication such as Wendy Belcher’s book Write Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks. Presenters will also share tips based on their experiences publishing in both the United States and Europe.
“Being a productive researcher and sharing your findings with others is critical to advancing your career, whether you are a graduate student getting ready to go on the job market or a faculty member preparing for tenure or promotion. This workshop will demystify aspects of the publishing process and provide concrete strategies to support your success,” said Dr. Candis Bond, associate professor of English and director of the Center for Writing Excellence.
Presenters will include Dr. Romana Hinton, professional writing consultant in the Augusta University Center for Writing Excellence; Dr. Katarzyna Hryniuk, associate professor of applied linguistics at the University of Warsaw, Poland; and Dr. Allie Johnston, assistant professor of languages and literature and director of the Writing Center at Austin Peay State University.
