From the Library to the Front Page: Pitching and Placing Your Work

Part of the "Enhance Your Public Communication Skills" event series

Have a killer concept based on your doctoral research and want to share it to a wider audience? Academics are increasingly writing beyond curriculums and 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.

Space is limited. Please reserve your spot.

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Career Planning & Professional Development.
