Does the world of professional writing and publishing seem impossible to break into? Do you feel like you have nothing to say? Are you feeling intimidated by academic publishing?

Professional writing benefits both the author and the profession as a whole. In this program, you will receive advice from three librarians with lots of experience writing and publishing. You will leave this program with the tools and confidence to get involved in professional writing and get your voice heard!
