35th Annual Summer Case Writer's Workshop
Western Connecticut State University
Danbury, Connecticut
July 11-13, 2013

Call for Cases

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? 

Case Writers at all stages – prospective authors who want to learn what case writing is all about; new authors and desire feedback, help and encouragement; experienced authors and want their cases professionally reviewed! 

WHAT’S THE SCOOP? 

Learn About Case Writing. The Annual Summer Case Writer’s Workshop helps prospective authors, new authors and experienced authors of case writing learn how to prepare cases for classroom use and publication.  Concurrent groups meet over 1.5 days to discuss each case submitted.  As a case author, you will receive feedback from a group of fellow case writers to help improve your case and teaching note.  In each group the author is present; a chair facilitates the feedback process; a scribe takes notes (so the author can listen to the comments and engage with the reviewers).  Participants in each group have read the case prior to the workshop and come prepared to offer constructive feedback and suggestions on how a case and accompanying teaching note might be improved.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SUBMIT A CASE TO ATTEND.  Individuals interested in exploring case writing as an alternative to traditional research are encouraged to attend. 

Publish Your Case.  Abstracts of all cases accepted for presentation will be published in the Conference Proceedings.  Cases presented at the workshop are eligible for submission to the Journal of Case Studies or the Business Case Journal, both blind-refereed publications sponsored by the Society for Case Research.

Have a Good Time.  Workshop participants are a friendly, enthusiastic group who get together to help each other with case writing and case teaching.  The program on Friday evening will involve a fun experience for you and your whole family at a local attraction.
