To assist New Zealand occupational therapists to develop skills in writing for publication, a focused search of the professional literature was conducted to identify key information. This article outlines the search process and collates advice gleaned from literature and the authors‟ personal experience into a discussion encompassing writing as an occupation that is achievable through planned marshalling of resources, setting short-term goals, envisaging oneself as a writer, and having realistic expectations of skill development and the time that must be committed to writing for publication. The process of manuscript review and strategies to support skill development are also outlined.
