Writing for Publication.
Brueggemann, Brenda Jo
To develop a useful attitude toward the issue of getting published, graduate students need to explore both personally and professionally what it means to be a member of a discourse community, what it means to have what they know constructed by that community, and what the boundaries are between their personal and academic selves and voices. Graduate students would do well to enter into the academic conversation by reading the major journals in their field, deciding which ones they want to write for, and then joining the conversation. Ideally, such writing could be done as part of completing a paper for a graduate course. Graduate student groups ("research colloquiums") can be useful places to share writing and get feedback. Graduate students must learn to develop and trust their own voices to enter effectively into this arena. (SR)
