The LACUNY Junior Faculty Research Roundtable and Professional Development Committee are partnering to host a spring 2018 event.
“Taming the Wild & Unruly Writing Process:
Strategies and Tips for Academic Librarians”
What role does writing play in our professional lives? How does it affect our job status, job security, and professional identity? How do we get started with the practice of writing? How and where do we submit our work? How do we come up with topics, find collaborators, and stay motivated? What should we expect from the publication process? From the research process? What types of publications and writing are acceptable? This interactive workshop will address these questions and many more, and allow time for conversations, sharing, and writing. We will also discuss time-management techniques, creative outlets, mentoring, and the incorporation of habits to assist with productivity, accountability, and confidence. Bring your questions, ideas, and writing tools (digital or analog).
Suzanne Markgren, ACRL/NY Board Member and Assistant Director for Technical Services, Manhattan College Library, will be our facilitator. Please join us for what is sure to be an informative and engaging event.
LOCATION: CUNY Central Office - 205 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017, Room 42-0770
DATE: Friday, April 27th
TIME: 2:00pm to 4:00pm
