On Saturday, November 16 from 8:00-10:00, the CFSHRC is offering one-on-one manuscript mentoring for any registered participant interested in receiving feedback on a publication project such as a journal article, book chapter, book proposal, grant proposal, webtext, or other scholarly composition. Participants need not be 2019 FemRhet conference presenters, only registered attendees.

Writers at all stages of publication development are welcome, including writers interested in turning conference papers, seminar papers, or dissertation chapters into articles. Interested authors will be matched with Coalition members with similar or complementary interests.

Note: While we have scheduled mentoring for the Saturday morning session, you can still participate even if you do not plan to be on-site Saturday. Simply pre-arrange an alternative time to meet with your mentor while at the conference.

Sign up deadline: Monday, September 16
