Conference Paper Transformations (GSC-sponsored Session) (Roundtable) (NeMLA GSC (Graduate Student Caucus) Roundtable)
Organization: Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Event: NeMLA GSC (Graduate Student Caucus) Roundtable
Graduate students who come to NeMLA get professionalization practice at writing and delivering conference papers. After the show is over, what becomes of those rich documents and the feedback you received on your work?
This GSC-sponsored roundtable aims to give practical advice to graduate students and others, particularly early career and precariously employed professionals, regarding strategies for developing your recently delivered paper into a publishable manuscript. We particularly encourage proposals that cover a variety of publishing opportunities, including small presses and open access journals. Possible discussion points include:
Choosing the right publication to target
Open access journals
Graduate student-focused journals
Collaborating with mentors or fellow students
Please submit proposals of 250-300 words, with a bio of at most 100 words, on how you intend to address one or more of the talking points above.
This is a GSC-sponsored session proposal. Non-GSC officers may be tapped to be co-chairs.
