THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICEThis is an initiative by the Journal of Military and Veterans' Health to support you in developing high level writing skills. Although I am facilitating the workshop it is a team effort, and on the day, Associate Marion Mitchell and Mr Benjamin Mackie will join me to provide individual mentoring. The day begins with a series of presentations that are designed to provide you with specific writing skills. This will include examples from the nursing/medical literature. This will be followed by some one-on-one work with our attendees to help get your paper or manuscript up to publication standard. For those who have not yet begun the process of developing their paper, I still encourage you to attend with your laptop or tablet and we can begin this process during the workshop. I look forward to welcoming you to the workshop in early May. Anne McMurray, AM
