A Pair of Workshops - Writing for Publication

Have you ever thought about writing an article but have never got round to doing it? Are not sure where to publish it? Are you struggling to find time? Would like some friendly feedback? Library and Information Research Group and the CILIP in London Branch are running two workshops, facilitated by successful academic authors and editors of library journals. The workshops include an introductory session aimed at new writers and a follow up for those interested in drafting a paper and receiving feedback.

Aimed particularly at practitioners, students and academics, these workshops are especially suitable for those who have never written for publication or who would like some feedback about their writing. Participants at previous workshops have gone on to successfully publish in a range of journals and newsletters.

Workshop 1: An introduction to Writing

It will also offer ideas and tips in: getting started; how to keep going; where to publish and the publishing process; what peer reviewers look for and how to deal with their comments.

Workshop 2: Follow up workshop - An introduction to writing and discussing your paper
