Next week's workshop: update

Here's the revised plan for the next two weeks:

4/10: The syllabus asks that you bring a typed draft of your paper to class, but it would be even better if you could (1) send the paper to the rest of us a little ahead of time (even by the 9th). If that's not possible, please bring 4 copies to class so that we can all read and discuss them.

We'll also be talking about journal submissions on this day. Included topics:

--How to write a cover letter for a journal submission
--Finding the right journal and the MLA Directory of Periodicals
--Where to find calls for special issues
--What editors are looking for
--Readers' reports:  types of forms, types of responses
--How to respond to a "revise and resubmit"
--Electronic submissions, bibliographic database software, and other technical matters

4/17: No class so that we can all attend the English Department's Awards Ceremony

Article repository password

The Bender article is in the article repository (backup site), which is where all the scanned-in articles will be.  You need to use the username and password that I sent you by email to gain access to those articles.

Only two articles this week

Since we have so many smaller readings this week, and since Erika can't be there on Tuesday, we only need to read two articles this week: the Pizer one that Dave has posted and the Bender one that's already in the wiki.

Backup site

As you all must have noticed, the PBworks site was down all weekend, and you couldn't get to the readings. 

I've set up a backup site here:; the password and username have been emailed to you.
