What's in a name?

I've heard from several people that they would write for The Silverfish, if only they knew what to write. I'm not here to tell you what to write, exactly. It has to come from you, or you won't have fun writing it. And fun is the point...for the most point.

I do have a general list of what we're looking for.

Reviews of books, movies based on books
Article responses
Action reports from conferences: reactions to conferences attended; Review of conferences-what helped, what didn't.
Class reports: Kind of like a "what I know now that I didn't know..."; "I took this class, and it was good because..."
Opinion pieces on issues that have arisen in your research (e.g. Why we should give money to libraries after natural disasters).
More breaking news, things and issues that will change quickly, can be posted here, on the blog.

If you're still unsure about what to write, but might have ideas, you are always welcome to bounce them off of us. Just email them to

Happy Writing!
