This course is designed for librarians who want or need to get started publishing in scholarly or trade publications, but aren’t sure where to even start. Whether you are new to the field or just moved into a new position in a library that requires publication for promotion and/or tenure, it can be intimidating and overwhelming to find a topic you feel qualified to publish on, figure out where to submit it, and draft that first proposal. This course will provide guidance and space to workshop your ideas on: - Selecting a topic and figuring out where to even get started - Exploring different approaches to scholarly writing - Finding calls for proposals and drafting a proposal - Strategies for success in writing the actual draft and dealing with feedback This course will be at an introductory level, but there will be some flexibility built in to include those who are really just trying to find a topic to start to explore as well as those who already have a defined research question in mind but are psyching themselves out of getting started. We will focus on strategies for working through these stages of writing for scholarly and trade journals. Participants will have an opportunity to get peer and instructor feedback on topics and on a small writing sample. However, there will be no expectation that you complete a full chapter or article draft during this 4-week course!
