Writing Workshop

Are you trying to get something published? Have you got a project written up and it keeps getting rejected? Do you have a really good idea, but no clue as to how you are going to get this in to print?

Pediatric AnesthesiaWe have organised this workshop with you in mind. Andrew Davidson (RCH, Melbourne and the Editor in chief) and some of the associate editors from the journal Pediatric Anesthesia will provide an interactive seminar on the common pitfalls and misconceptions that might prevent you from being a successful author and making a successful contribution in your specialist  area of children’s anaesthesia.

The Pediatric Anesthesia Journal Team will take you through the process from idea to development of project design and subsequent write-up and  publication with an eye on the key common themes that prevent work being accepted by a journal. It is not the intention to provide a ‘clinic’, where an expert can sub-edit one of your own papers but you will have excellent access to a small expert group who regularly deal with this and show you how to avoid the usual problems.

This workshop will run in the afternoon of the 8th June in the Colston Hall and will be limited to 24 participants. Please pre-book when Registering
