The Conversation Canada (TCC; theconversation.com/ca) programming works to enhance the visibility, global reach, and impact of Canadian scholars and universities. A booth at the Congress Expo will offer an opportunity to talk to editors from TCC about opportunities to mobilise research. In a writing workshop, participants will learn how to plan, pitch and write with greater impact in a clear, concise, and compelling way for a broad audience. During the drop-in sessions, attendees will meet the editors of TCC to discuss what makes for a good pitch and get tips on writing timely research-driven analysis. On the why I write panel, scholars share insights into the process of pitching, writing, and editing research-driven analysis.
