CTSI Offering Intensive Course in Manuscript Writing

CTSI Offering Intensive Course in Manuscript Writing

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) is offering a virtual intensive course in manuscript writing.

The purpose of this course is to promote the dissemination of research findings through training on best practices in manuscript writing, with interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaboration in that process. This course aims to help participants achieve greater success in writing competitive manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals. To this aim, paticipants will learn about and practice using the tools that professional writers employ to speed up progress, elevate quality, and reduce anxiety. The course will be conducted by a professional writing coach with more than two decades of experience empowering researchers to write more productively.

This course is intended for clinicians, investigators, and other faculty at MCW, Children’s Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee VA Medical Center, Versiti, Milwaukee School of Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Marquette University.  The course is designed for those at any stage of their career who would like the structure, pacing, accountability, guidance, and support to complete one competitive manuscript in 10 weeks. Participants may choose to work on a manuscript that is at any stage of preparation: outline, partial or first draft, or rejected submission.

Classes are limited to 20 participants, comprised of 5 cohorts with 4 participants each. Cohorts meet in a two-hour virtual session once a week for a total of ten weeks. Participants are expected to devote an additional 4 hours per week working on their manuscripts and providing feedback to cohort members.
