If you're in an academic career, or if you're looking to pursue one, communicating your research to a range of audiences is probably going to be an important part of what you do. This writing workshop offered by The Conversation Canada editors will help academics learn how to plan, pitch and write with greater impact. The session is aimed at Humanities and Social Sciences researchers at all career stages so that they can better persuade influential people outside your field – including funding assessors, politicians, the media, industry and the public – that their work matters. This session would address how and when to pitch ideas for a story and how to go about writing in a clear, concise and compelling way for a broad audience.
