Workshop synopsis


Writing for publication is a course offered by the Sydney School of Education and Social Work for research students in their final year of candidature. The course is made up of a series of two hour workshops. The workshops are held on Wednesdays from 4 to 6pm.

The aim of the workshops is to mentor research students in the writing for publication process. By the end of the course, all students will be expected to have submitted an article for publication to an international peer-reviewed journal in their area of research.

To undertake this course, students must have an article they will be able to work on during the workshops, and be willing to present their work to the group for discussion and feedback.

Students will form writing groups where they will read and provide each other with feedback on their work. The course sessions will be a mix of input, discussion, and peer-feedback on students’ texts. Topics and dates will be as below. Students must commit to attending all of these workshops.
