Free 3-Part Workshop Series

VSPA is always proud to sponsor the 3-part series, How to Get Published in International Journals: Writing Strategies for Non-Native English-Speaking Scholars. The lecture series presents specific approaches to help the writer recognize and work with linguistic and organizational cues not readily apparent to the untrained eye.Writing in English is different from writing in any other language. This critical difference not only places extra demands on scholars whose first language is not English but also makes it harder to compete with native English speakers for limited space in the top professional journals.

Please note that separate registration is required for each lecture. The lectures will be held in 106 Stanley Hall.
