Have a killer concept based on your doctoral research and want to share it to a wider audience? Academics are increasingly writing for a variety of media outlets. But how, exactly do you get your work published in the non-academic press? Join us as we talk about what makes for a good story, how to find a place to publish your work, identifying who to send your story proposal to, what makes a good story pitch, what the process is like (from preliminary research to pitching and editorial review), and tips from the front lines of how to build your portfolio.
