Coming to Voice: Publishing as a Graduate Student

Writing for Publication: Behind the Scenes in Language Education (2003)

In this chapter, I explore issues that graduate students face in learning to write for publication by constructing a narrative of my own experience of learning to write for scholarly publication. I begin by discussing my initial goal—publishing for the sake of publishing—and describe how I became aware of the importance of being aware of the audience, of reading widely, of finding a real purpose for writing.
