Publish or perish? While perhaps not as crucial in the professional field of visual resources as it is in many academic disciplines, there are many reasons to consider publishing. The personal and professional benefits of publishing are many, providing the opportunity to: sink your teeth into areas of interest, learn new things, focus on pertinent topics, expand expertise, build your resume, demonstrate professionalism to your constituents, strengthen your case for promotion, and share valuable experiences and insights with a global audience. Simply put, instead of publish or perish, why not publish and thrive?   This interactive, half-day workshop will provide a comprehensive toolkit for how to develop a piece for publication. The instructors will cover various publication formats, topic identification, journalistic methods, style guide usage, peer review issues, illustrations, references, editing, and how to finalize a manuscript. Using the example of the VRA Bulletin, the electronic journal of visual resources professional practice, the workshop will also provide a window into the publication process. The editors of this publication will discuss the content options and submission guidelines, as well as demonstrate how the online tools and system work. We will also identify other key publications to which visual resources professionals may contribute utilizing the skills gleaned in this workshop. Whether you are starting from scratch or have a project well underway, this workshop will provide you with the information and confidence to pursue professional publishing.
