We cover what to send, how to prepare for print, where to send, and when you should be circulating your work. The discussion will entail how to choose venues for your essays, how to understand readers’ reports, and how to understand editors’ purposes as well as offer some instruction in how to think about converting seminar essays, panel papers, and dissertation chapters into publishable articles. All welcome.
