How Can I Share My Work?

Presenting your work in a professional setting is the ultimate reward for and validation of your scholarly efforts. If you would like to share your creative work or results from your research project, you have many choices to present, perform, exhibit, etc. at events nationwide.

If this is the first time for you to share your work publicly, you may want to choose a local or regional event, because the large, national venues can sometimes be intimidating for first-time presenters.
