Writing and publishing is an important aspect of librarianship. Whether you
are writing to earn tenure or a promotion, writing to share your knowledge
and experience with colleagues around your region or across the globe,
documenting policies and procedures for your department, or a student
writing to meet course requirements, writing is something that many of us
do as part of our professional lives. The act of writing can be challenging
or can stall for a number of reasons, and there are a variety of
self-directed or group-directed ways to overcome the challenges many of us
experience when we write. Join us to discuss tips, strategies, tools, or
apps that people use to work through the writing process, and complete an
article, book, or other writing project.

What Is an e-Forum?
An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters
of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The
e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email
address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate
with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two
to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free.
For information about upcoming e-forums, please visit
