Registration Closed / Past Event


Join Dr. Laura Moss, Professor of English and editor of the journal Canadian Literature, for a two-hour article publishing workshop. The workshop will draw on the Career Advice column she published in Inside Higher Ed called “25 Ways to Increase Your Chances at Publication."

Dr. Moss will first provide a detailed behind-the-scenes look at the ins and outs of scholarly publishing. Learn about the stages an article goes through from submission to publication to help illuminate what gets published and why.  Dr. Moss will then lead an interactive peer-review session. Bring a draft of the first page of an article you plan to submit to a scholarly journal and be ready to dig in. 


Dr. Laura Moss is a professor of English in the Department of English Language and Literatures at the University of British Columbia and the editor of Canadian Literature: A Quarterly of Criticism and Review. She is also the new Brenda and David McLean Chair in Canadian Studies (2019-2021).
