Preconference: So you think you can write?
Saturday, March 10 from 9-4pm in Camelback (A) Sheraton
Writing for professional publication is an important and useful skill for student affairs practitioners and faculty members. 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.

Have you always wanted to write for professional publication but didn’t know where to start? Well-published authors in the student affairs field will be available to discuss professional and scholarly writing topics in a roundtable setting.

Table topics will include: turning your dissertation into an article; basics of scholarly writing; the editorial review process; publication outlets; staying on track during tenure; questions you are reluctant to ask.
