SSAWW 2015 Conference Registration and SSAWW Membership

Dear Conference Participants,

As we move ever closer to the November conference, we are asking all of you who have not yet registered for the conference to please do so right way and no later than October 2nd.

We are also reminding everyone that conference participants must be SSAWW members (this is separate from the conference registration) and if you have not yet joined or renewed your SSAWW membership, we ask that you do so now, and again, no later than October 2nd.

The program will be going to print in October, and we want to ensure that it is accurate and that all the panels remain as dynamic and exciting as they are now. Please complete these registrations no later than October 2nd to ensure your inclusion on the program. If you are unable to do so, please let us know right away (ssaww2015.submit@gmail.com).

With all good wishes for the fall, and looking forward to Philadelphia,

The Conference Planning Committee: Rita, Dick, Beth, Miranda, Leslie, and Rickie-Ann

Conference 2015 Update – Adding to your conference registration order; getting a receipt

For those who want to add an item to their registration after they’ve already registered, please do the following:   Click on the link to the registration site: https://uw-whitewater-web.ungerboeck.com/reg/reg_p1_form.aspx?oc=10&ct=FULLREG&eventid=5836

Click on “no” to the Thursday evening reception (it’s full), click on the feature you want to add (such as Graduate Student lunch), and click “continue” at the bottom of the page.  This should bring you to “Registration Details”, where the item you added is listed, along with its cost.  If you saved a user name & password when you first registered, this information should also appear.  Click on “sign into account” and under “options” click on “edit order.”  Follow directions at the top of the page.

If you have trouble with the registration site, please contact cesevents@uww.edu or call (262) 472-3165, or email Beth Lueck (lueckb@uww.edu).  We’ll be happy to help you register or add something to your account.

Note:  Some registrants said they haven’t gotten a receipt, which should go automatically to your email address.  The office for the registration site said they are getting many emails bouncing back to them; some university email systems have set their filters to reject emails like theirs.  If you still need a receipt, try signing back into the reg site and printing out the final page that details your order and payment.  Again, if you need help, feel free to contact the registration site (cesevents@uww.edu or (262) 472-3165), or email Beth Lueck (lueckb@uww.edu).

SSAWW 2015 Conference Update

Dear SSAWW conference participants,

Here is an updated draft schedule: SSAWW 2015 Draft Schedule, August

Please once again check your participation days/times since we have made some changes and configured some panels anew. For those of you chairing, some of the presenters on your panel may vary from when you signed on to chair so please double-check to see who is on your panel.

If you are no longer in a position to attend the conference, please let us know right away so we can adjust the very strong program we have in place accordingly: ssaww2015.submit@gmail.com

For those of you who have not yet registered, please do so as soon as possible.

Thanks for all the excellent work that has been put forward to create the conference program. We look forward to a wide range of stimulating and inspiring conversations.

Some things to note on the draft schedule:

The Mentoring Breakfast table topics are now listed and you can still sign up for this event as well as the lunch through the Wisconsin Registration site.

Our Wednesday night welcome sessions are in place.

The Chat with an Editor sign-ups will be available closer to the conference.

Our casual conversations for Sunday morning are a great opportunity for a few final meetings with friends and acquaintances old and new.

We are planning creative writers reading sessions, Philadelphia women writers walks, and working on a few other things.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia.

Reminder: the graduate student travel awards are due August 30th, and the child care subsidy awards are due October 15th. And remember to ask your publishers to send books for the exhibit to The Scholar’s Choice.

All conference information is available at:


Best wishes for the coming term.

New “Chat with an Editor” Feature at the SSAWW Conference in Philadelphia

Do you have questions about any aspect of publishing in a scholarly journal? Would you like an editor to look over the abstract and/or introduction to an article you’re thinking of sending out to a journal? Would you like advice about turning a dissertation chapter into a publishable article? Throughout the conference, we’ll have editors of different scholarly journals on hand to meet with conference attendees. Sign up coming soon.

With thanks to the editors involved.

These sessions will complement several other program features at SSAWW such as the Mentoring Breakfast table topics on publishing articles, and publishing books and the session, “Publishing and the Open Access Journal: A Roundtable Discussion,” on Friday.
