WriteShop

 

Some publications can be produced more efficiently and effectively using the “writeshop” approach. A writeshop is a working group established to ensure a particular publication is produced on time, under budget and according to the specified needs of the stakeholders.

                c. an agreed mechanism for revising and approving the final draft

3. A plan for publication, distribution and evaluation (including a budget)
