Meeting Description:

Writing an article for a professional publication is different than writing a paper for a professor. Learn the conversational style of writing preferred by most professional magazines. This webinar will not talk about scholarly writing or writing dissertations. Instead, participants will learn tips for ensuring that the manuscripts they submit for publication have a more approachable style and tone than dissertations that sit on a library shelf.

Date: Thu, May 3, 2012
Time: 04:00 PM EDT
Duration: 1 hour
Host(s): DeShawn Easley
