Mentoring

Pre-submission Mentorship Program

The SRW offers students the opportunity to get advance feedback before submitting their work for review. The goal of the pre-submission mentorship program is to improve the quality of writing and presentation of the student’s work, not to critique it. Participation is optional but encouraged and pre-submission mentorship is not anonymous.

Students wishing to participate must submit the paper by December 11, 2020 via e-mail to naacl2021-srw@googlegroups.com along with the following included in the e-mail.

Note that even though the mentoring is not done anonymously, the paper needs to be anonymized. We will check for formality of the paper including formatting before we match mentors.

Participants will receive a mentor who will review and provide feedback to the student within 4 weeks. This mentor will not be the same person who will review the final submission. The feedback will be in the format of guidelines and suggestions to improve the overall writing; students are not required to make the changes suggested by the pre-submission mentor.
