Participants in Write to Publish II (W2P-II) will draft and revise an article for publication. Graduate student and postdoctoral participants will plan their semester’s writing, set realistic writing goals each week, track their writing progress, and contribute conversationally to their W2P-II writing community. 

The course learning objectives and outcomes will be set individually by participants so that each participant can achieve their specific writing-for-publication goals this semester.
