Wed 2 Oct 2019, 2.30pm; Room 205, 5 University Gardens, University of Glasgow
Everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask! Please join the Transatlantic Literary Women team for this friendly, hands-on workshop led by the brilliant editor of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, Professor Susan Tomlinson. Free. ALL welcome.
Modelled on the Modern Language Association’s “How to Get Published” roundtable and individual “Chat with an Editor” meetings, this workshop will explore the vagaries, challenges, and delights of scholarly journals. Professor Susan Tomlinson, the editor of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, will offer guidance for entering this stage of your scholarly development: How does the peer-review process work? What do editors look for and what distresses them? How should you decide when to submit your work and how should you prepare your submission? Bring questions, pitch ideas, and let’s talk about the future of the profession.
Susan Tomlinson is an associate professor of English at the University of Massachusetts Boston and the editor of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers. Her work focuses on late nineteenth-and early twentieth-century US literature, particularly black and middlebrow women writers and the anxieties their work incites among the arbiters of modernism.
