Your Invitation to a
Writing Support session via Zoom for prospective e-O&P Authors and Critical Friends
As co-editors of the Winter 2020 edition of AMED’s journal e-Organisations and People (e-O&P) on the theme of ‘Fresh Horizons’, we’re inviting you to engage in an optional facilitated writers’ and critical friends’ support session. Here, you’ll have a chance to surface, share, refine and enhance your ideas, issues and practices while your drafting and/or critical friendships are in their formative stages. We can also answer any questions you may have about the publication process for e-O&P.
About our process: As we understand it, critical friendship (see the three links below for context) is a generous, well-intentioned relationship, with some similarities to action learning, in which you can raise and address emerging issues for your or other people's writing within a small, temporary community of writing practice. In our two hours together, there should be opportunities for whole group and small group discussion, for some personal time to reflect, and possibly even for a little writing. We can also explain how we interpret our role as co-editors, and yours as participants, as one of engaging with each other in an open, critically friendly relationship.
How to book your place: Please let us know by Tuesday 8 September (earlier if possible) whether or not you’d like to join us. You can do so in the RSVP space on the right-hand side of this page, or via e-mail. We’ll then send you a little more information, and the Zoom link. This invitation is open to both prospective authors and critical friends. Everyone is welcome.
See especially page 45 of the 3rd link (it's actually page 3 of this 10-page offprint) for some critical friend qualities.
Please feel free to get in touch beforehand if there’s anything you’d like to discuss before making your decision.
Very best wishes.
