Rice StoryBox Events - Looking for Participants
StoryBox is a unique storytelling event that brings people together to ask big questions, share life stories, and illuminate what we have in common. We will be telling each other stories inspired by the theme of “Roots.”
How to Get Published - Publishing Workshop
Michael Sharp, Classics and Byzantine Studies Editor for Cambridge University Press, will give a presentation aimed at guiding you through the process of getting your first book or journal article published. The presentation will last approximately one hour, followed by ample time for questions. In addition to the presentation, students and faculty with publishing projects can schedule individual meetings afterwards for consultation on their work.
