Over the next three issues three linked articles will take you through guidance about how to write for publication. In 2009 and 2010 Taylor & Francis funded two workshops on this topic for members of the British Association for Sexual and Relationship Therapy. Using some of the exercises and feedback from these workshops the article will consider: common anxieties that therapists have about writing and how to address these; some of the main forms of writing that counsellors and therapists can consider; key aspects of structure and content; and how to go through the process of submission, review and revision. It is hoped that the articles will go some way towards demystifying the process and increasing your confidence in writing and submitting publications.
