Introductory Workshop: Writing for the Dramatherapy Journal
Friday 27 November 2020
16:30 to 17:30
Writing a paper for the Dramatherapy Journal can be a daunting prospect. The workshop will make more transparent the submission process with respect to following the author guidelines, the presentation and formatting of your submission and the importance of adhering to ethical principles. You will also learn how to move from initial ideas to the final draft and submission of your article. You will learn how to structure your paper, work with revisions of your drafts and suggestions on how you can improve and develop yourself as a writer and author with increasing confidence.
This session is being recorded.
