The WRITE Project: A Guided Writing for Publication Workshop for Nurses

Improve Your WRITE-ing Skills with the WRITE Project

Calling all new and experienced healthcare writers! The Gastroenterology Nursing Journal (GNJ) has introduced the WRITE Project, a new guided writing-for-publication workshop to help GI nurses write excellent peer-reviewed articles more likely to be published. Through the WRITE project, led by the GNJ Editorial Board, participants will follow a step-by-step curriculum aimed at how to best develop an exceptional peer-reviewed article from a topic idea to final publication. 

With useful lessons for experienced and novice writers alike, this workshop is perfect for anyone who has an idea for an article, but does not know where to start, or is looking to enhance their writing skills in their next peer reviewed publication. It is strongly recommended that applicants have a topic already identified for their article.
