We are pleased to welcome back editors from The Conversation this year who will be able to introduce you to this innovative research-based media platform. Stories written by academics in The Conversation often receive wider press pick-up in major outlets (including The Guardian, Huffington Post, and The Independent, to name a few).The editor will take you through how the process of writing for the platform works, tips and tricks for creating effective pitches and articles, and explore some of the factors you might need to consider. There will then be time in the afternoon to draft a pitch and receive in-person feedback from the editors.

Tea, coffee, and a sandwich lunch will be provided. Open to researchers from Social Sciences Division & Humanities Division.
