This intensive writing workshop will introduce authors new to professional writing to the processes of writing, submission, and publication in professional journals. A major workshop goal will be to de-mystify the publication process and help participant writers gain confidence in their potential to publish. Participants will experience three-on-one coaching on a piece of writing brought with them to the workshop.

The presenters, all former students of Dr. Komives, will focus on how Dr. Komives’ scholarship in leadership development guides purposeful student affairs scholarship and practice, and highlight how her mentoring transformed their scholarship and practice as change agents. Through interactions between participants and presenters, the session will emphasize how the links between research and practice create mentoring networks to ignite leadership throughout the student affairs field.
