Essaying into journals

pencil-case

Here’s one of the more recently bookmarked posts: Mark Jones is writing about how to work MA assignments and dissertations into a solid journal article. He describes all stages of the process very clearly (I especially like the last one: “Rest for 3-9 months. Seriously.”). It’s interesting how much cutting and trimming is involved, whereas talks and presentations usually need a lot of buffing up before they can be published.

If you add this to the article I referred to here about writing for professional magazines, there’s no excuse not to write!
