EGSS Writing Workshops

EGSS Workshop Series Facilitated

by Dr.Stephen Peters: Strategies for Publication

This three-part writing workshop is part of EGSS’s post- conference workshop series and designed to develop your conference or term papers into a submission-ready manuscript.

  • Across the three workshop sessions, participants will explore strategies for planning: Who are we writing to? Why are they reading our work? How will we reach them? What’s the genre? What’s the knowledge need? And what’s our contribution?
  • Participants will try out strategies for beginning their work: What’s the research space? What’s the conversation? And where’s our voice?
  • And strategies for continuing and completing their work: How do we make and maintain an argument? How will the reader ‘move’ through our work? What do they need to know? How can we chunk out writing?
  • This workshop will also examine methods for giving feedback and what to expect when once you’ve submitted. Workshop participants will need a specific writing project (something to say!) to fully participate.
  • Save dates and time for April 23rd, April 30th, and May 7th at 9:30: One hour workshop and 30 minutes Q&A + draws for those who attend the workshops.
  • EGSS will send you a registration form at the beginning of April. Please make sure to register.
