Tell Your Story: Writing and Publishing for Law Librarians
Description: In “Tell Your Story: Writing and Publishing for Law Librarians”, Elyse Fox will draw on her own extensive experience in writing and publishing and share tips on how you can get your own writing published in legal and library publications.
Presenter: Elyse Fox has worked as a reference law librarian and independent law librarian for 40+ years in academic, private, and membership law libraries. Previously she practiced law in Chicago and Boston and taught legal research. She has presented at law library association meetings both within and outside the United States.
Ms. Fox earned her BA from the University of Michigan (Honors and Distinction in Linguistics), her JD from the University of Michigan Law School, and her MSLS from Simmons College.
Ms. Fox has published in Legal Reference Services Quarterly and Law Library Journal. She has also self-published newsletters, books, and an index. She believes strongly that law librarians should write and publish, not only for the library community but also for the legal community. She herself has written for both communities. Tell Your Story: Writing and Publishing for Law Librarians (20 chapters, © 2020, https://legalinformationservices.com/product/tell-your-story-writing-and-publishing-for-law-librarians/) provides guidance to law librarians regarding writing and publishing.
When she is not writing books, Elyse enjoys exercise, travel, competitive Scrabble, and improv comedy (she took a six-week improv comedy workshop, which was a stretch for her!).
When: Wednesday, March 23rd, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
