Writing for Research: Using Writing to Think, Teach, & Create

April 5, 2018

I’m heading to the University of Michigan next week to teach an Ideas on Fire workshop on writing techniques for interdisciplinary scholars, specifically aimed at graduate students and early-career faculty in communication and media studies.

Writing for Research

Writing is often presented as the end game: first you research, then you write it all up for publication. But writing is actually crucial to doing research itself.

This hands-on, all-day workshop takes participants through the various stages of writing for research, including writing as method, note taking, outlining and compiling first drafts, setting a year-long publishing schedule, editing your own and fellow writers’ manuscripts, and building your research and writing organization system.

Participants will also workshop a manuscript, getting personalized feedback from a developmental editor and copyeditor.

Want to bring this workshop to your campus?
