In the spirit of The Dissertation House, we are piloting a new seminar series called “Writing for Publication” for graduate students at all levels. In these sessions, students who are ready to prepare research for publication would gather as a group with a mentor-coach to hear advice, set goals, and work on manuscripts.
Dates: Tuesday, January 22 and Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Location: UMBC Commons, Room 318 (1/22), Room 331 (1/23)
Eligibility: All M.S. and Ph.D. students, in all disciplines are welcome to apply. We will choose up to 15 students. Decisions will be made based on clarity and focus of project descriptions.
Mentor-Coach: Dr. Patricia Young, Associate Professor of Education, UMBC
