Fifth Annual Archives Month Celebration
SAN MARCOS, Texas—On Friday, October 1 from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m., the Wittliff Collections and the University Archives at Texas State University-San Marcos will be hosting their fifth annual Archives Month celebration. This year’s free event features a panel called “Know Your Audience: Tips for Successful Writing,” at the Wittliff Collections on the seventh floor of Texas State’s Alkek Library.
Not just for archivists and librarians, anyone interested in hearing expert advice on successful, professional writing is invited to attend. Each panelist will give a short presentation about a specific type of writing, and a moderated discussion will follow. The panelists will then take questions from the audience.

Gracy II, editor of Libraries and the Cultural Record, speaking on scholarly writing; Kris Toma and Katie Salzmann, co-editors of Southwestern Archivist, on newsletter writing; Pat Hawthorne, Director of Research and Learning, Alkek Library, on press releases; and Anne Peters, Communications Coordinator, UT-San Antonio Libraries, on social media.
The panel begins at 1:30 p.m. The reception will run from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. Both activities are free and open to the public. Panel attendance is not required to attend the reception.
