Upcoming Writing Workshops: Hosted by the Engage for Change Journal

Hello, Marauders! Welcome back to another day, another post. Today I will be advertising two upcoming writing workshops that the Engage for Change Journal is hosting. Both workshops are located in McNairy Library, Room 104, and will be held from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM.

What is the Engage for Change Journal, you may be wondering? It is a fairly new journal on campus that seeks to identify relevant political, social, or economic issues. Who can write for the Journal? The Journal takes submissions from MU students, faculty, staff, and Lancaster community members! What kinds of articles does the Journal accept? They accept research, impact, perspective, creative pieces, reviews, and more! The deadline for submissions for the upcoming issue of the Journal isn’t until September 9th, 2024, so you’ve still got plenty of time to write about something that you’re passionate about! Check out https://blogs.millersville.edu/engageforchangejournal/ for more information!

The theme for the Journal’s 2024-2025 issue is Equity and Justice in Education. Are you interested in sharing your thoughts, opinions, informed perspectives, research findings, or creative commentaries about a topic in equity and justice in education? This coming Tuesday, 3/26, the Journal is hosting a writing workshop for interested or current authors to come meet the Journal team and work with them to help you find partners to co-author with if you’re interested in collaborating, generate ideas focused on equity and justice in education, and determine what type of article you want to write! The event is FREE and light refreshments will be provided! You can register through this link: http://tinyurl.com/march14forum. If you have more questions about the Journal or the workshops, please email engageforchangejournal@millersville.edu or follow the Journal’s Instagram (@engageforchangejournal) for more updates.

Now, where does the Writing Center come into this? Well, the Center is a perfect place for you to bring your articles for us to look at if you have any specific questions or concerns! We help at any stage of the writing process, whether that be brainstorming, drafting, revising, or working on citations. We’d love to help! Visit us any time from 1-9 PM on Monday-Thursday, and from 1-4 on Fridays. As always, happy writing!
