From inspiration to ink

Warning blatant plug coming up. . . .

The RSM Trainees' Committee is holding an evening meeting next Wednesday called 'From inspiration to ink'. 

The aim is to link up budding writers with medical publishers and provide some tips on how to succeed. 

The fun part should be a 'Dragon's Den' style competition when potential authors will pitch their ideas to a panel of publishers and editors. There is a prize for the best proposal.

I will be giving a short talk on 'Finding time to write as a junior doctor' based on my experience producing the Oxford Specialty Training Series. . . .

Update: Khalil Secker, a medical student from Manchester, won the competition. He gave a passionate pitch on 'Beyond the Hippocratic Oath: A History of Medical Revolutionaries'. Everyone loved it. Watch out for the book deal and TV series . . .
