Writing as a Professional Activity.
Fisher, Margaret B.; Smith, Margaret Ruth
Professional women in education often encounter the need to write for their peers. This monograph discusses approaches to the writing process that will make writing assignments of various lengths more enjoyable and effective. An introductory chapter examines the search for a topic, creating time for writing, the stages of writing, and considerations for developing a personal writing style. Other chapters focus on specific problems and techniques to consider when writing theses or dissertations, journal articles, and books. The considerations discussed include resource materials, resource facilities, and procedures for manuscript preparation and revision. The final chapter lists some style manuals that are available, and an appendix provides a style guide and information about manuscripts for the "Journal of the National Association for Women Deans, Administrators, and Counselors."
