The editors of the MAA journals will be offering a hands-on workshop for prospective authors of expository papers intended for submission to the MAA journals. The session will begin with a brief discussion of the nature of expository writing, presented by Ivars Peterson, MAA director of publications. Editors and past-editors of The American Mathematical Monthly, Mathematics Magazine, The College Mathematics Journal, and Loci will then be available to consult with writers.
Participants are urged to bring their ideas for papers to the workshop regardless of the current state of their work. If anyone wishes to make arrangements in advance to consult an editor, please write the organizer, Michael Henle, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
