The ACRL Research Program Committee (RPC) is once again sponsoring Research Writer’s Consultations at the ALA Mid-Winter Conference, held June January 20-24, 2012 in Dallas, TX. Aimed at the new or inexperienced writer, the Research Writer’s Consultations will pair new or inexperienced writers with an experienced writer or editor, who will offer guidance and critique.
Are you an ACRL member working on a research article? Would you like some constructive feedback? Submit a draft research paper for consultation. RPC will match new writers with experienced writers and the pairs will meet face-to-face during the ACRL conference. Draft research papers must be submitted by January 9, 2012. Papers will be shared only among the designated pairs. Submission details follow:
Are you an experienced, published writer or editor? Interested in providing guidance to your colleagues who may be writing their first research article? Submit your name and a description of your areas of expertise by June 14, 2012. Reviewers are expected to review papers submitted by the writer they have been paired with in advance of the ALA Annual Conference, as well as guide the writing consultation onsite during the conference.
The experienced writer/editor and the writer they have been paired with will correspond ahead of time to determine the best time to meet at the conference.
