Save the Date: Writing from the Reader's Perspective with Dr. George Gopen

Tuesday, July 9 & Wednesday, July 10

As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, getting one's scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever.  In this day-long workshop, George Gopen, PhD, JD, presents his approach, based on a single idea: learning to write for the reader allows the writer to control what readers learn.

As in past years, Dr. Gopen will also conduct hour-long, individualized consultations.  Only faculty members who participate in the day-long event will have access to the individual consultation registration. 

More about Dr. Gopen's original approach to scientific writing can be found in his article, The Science of Scientific Writing.
