MATC is pleased to offer a workshop at the 2010 conference in Cleveland, OH for scholars and practitioners working on articles in progress in the areas of Theatre History, Performance, Pedagogy, Theory, and/or Practice. The workshop will offer the opportunity to meet in a closed session with journal editors who have read your work in advance and who will offer suggestions for improvement or on strategies for submitting to academic journals.

Articles-in-Progress Workshop facilitators in the past two years have included editors from:

Theatre Annual
Theatre Journal
Theatre Topics
Theatre History Studies
New England Theatre Journal

If you have an article you are preparing to submit for publication and would like critical feedback and advice from theatre scholars and professionals in the publishing field, please prepare an abstract of the work in progress and email it as a Word attachment by OCTOBER 15, 2009 to:

Carolyn D. Roark, Session Coordinator

Please include your name, academic affiliation, and title (identifying whether you are faculty, a student, or an independent scholar), with your abstract.

Essays for this workshop will be selected on the basis of overall clarity of the project and time limitations for the conference itself. Please look to the submission guidelines for the journals listed above as you prepare your proposal. Selected authors will be expected to submit full versions of the essays by January 31, 2009.
