Refining your Manuscript

with Dr. Diana Gustafson

  • Hilton New Orleans Riverside, Two Poydras St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Workshop Description

You’ve conducted the research. You’ve analyzed the data. Now comes the hard work of writing a manuscript that focuses on a single, significant message that will appeal to your readership, an editor, and your peer reviewers. The goal of this interactive workshop is help you turn a messy draft into a more refined manuscript. We’ll use a well-cited political science article as an example of how to tell a scholarly story. Come prepared to apply several practical strategies to a section of your manuscript before exchanging feedback with another participant. To ensure you leave this workshop feeling more confident about your revision skills, send me your burning questions and we’ll devote time to addressing your specific concerns for improving and refining your manuscript. As a post-workshop bonus, participants will be offered high-level comments (1-2 pages) on a manuscript section of their choosing. For more details, see:
