Wondering what it takes to write an article or a book for SAA? Prepare a case study on archives practice? Have an idea for a publication to review or terminology in the archival lexicon that needs defining? There are a range of opportunities to write for SAA—e-newsletters, blogs, case studies series, resource reviews, magazine, journal, and books. Whether you are a novice writer, continuing to hone your skills, or an experienced voice, tune in with your questions on Thursday, August 6, to learn how you can contribute to the professional literature! In this webinar, SAA Director of Publishing Teresa Brinati will kick-off a discussion with Publications and Case Studies Editor Stacie Williams, Archival Futures Series Co-editor Amy Cooper Cary, American Archivist Editor Cal Lee, Journal Reviews Editor Bethany Anderson, Archival Outlook Editor Abigail Christian, and Dictionary Working Group Chair Rosemary Pleva Flynn—each will highlight various publishing outlets and answer your queries on what and how to submit, content trends and new directions, as well as how to connect with editors after the webinar. SAA wants you to “write away”!


This is a free event! RSVP required for Zoom security.
