Presenting and Publishing Your Work

SLCC is predominantly a teaching institution, but we are also knowledge-makers.  Getting that knowledge out there is a challenge: understanding publishing processes; revising drafts for submission; and finding time to write!

The PWC provides three types of support for all SLCC employees:  

  • Effective Conference Proposals Workshop: See Faculty Development to register. 
  • Understanding Publishing Course: information, resources, and brief assignments take you through the process of writing for publication. Contact x.3232 to enroll. 
  • Writing Group: Twice-monthly working group to motivate, inspire, and support your writing process. The first meeting will provide instruction and resources on the month's theme; the second is reserved for your work time and feedback. Groups held 12:00pm - 1:00pm on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays (Professional Development Center, Taylorsville-Redwood).
