Description

"Publishing is an overwhelming experience, even for folx who have published multiple times throughout their career. And for some, the usual self-defeating thoughts are just too powerful: my topic isn’t interesting enough; my writing isn’t scholarly or academic enough; my perspective doesn’t matter; I’m just a student. For BIPOC especially, publishing in LIS can be a deflating, harmful or dehumanizing experience, the effects of structural whiteness. Enter up//root--a We Here publication, an experiment, an intervention. Created and fueled by joy and insurgence, devoid of apologies. Unlike other LIS publications (and environments), up//root is intentional about prioritizing wellbeing throughout the publishing experience. We recognize the process of publishing and the relationships that are nurtured among editors, contributors and reviewers as a result are as important and impactful as what’s published. Through this workshop, the up//root editors will discuss publishing research, meditations and creative work. First, the editors will provide an overview of up//root and its submission process, followed by a discussion of the criteria for publication, including its most contentious requirement: citing BIPOC only. Next, we will workshop participants’ ideas, topics or research questions, which they will have prepared for discussion prior to the Summit. The last part of the workshop is dedicated to engaging participants in a discussion about publishing their work, together with a community-driven brainstorming session of unprecedented possibilities for experimentation. The learning hope(s) for the workshop is to help folx along their path towards publishing their work in an unapologetic way that centers and uplifts the work of other BIPOC. Specifically, our goal is to reach first-time or emerging writers and creators, but others could benefit from this workshop. We hope participants will emerge from the workshop with a more solid path forward with new tools, knowledge, confidence, and energy."
