Event description

Description

The Humanities and Social Sciences Divisions will be hosting Laura Hood (Politics and Society Editor) and Annabel Bligh (Business and Economics Editor) from The Conversation for an Editors-in-Residence day. The following sessions are on offer to academic colleagues interested in contributing to The Conversation:

10:30-12:00 and again 13:30-15:00 | Workshop: Introduction to writing for The Conversation

This session led by Editors from The Conversation covers what it is, how to get involved, what are the benefits, tips for writing for general audience, examples of types of articles they publish. Also hear ‘Why writing for The Conversation was the best thing I did for my research profile last year’ from an Oxford academic.

Bring along ideas for a story to this workshop, where under the supervision of editors from The Conversation you will plan and start an article, being given feedback throughout.

12:15-13:00 and 15:15-16:15 | One-to-one drop in sessions with Editors

A limited number of drop-in sessions with editors are available on the dates of the workshops. If you have a piece in-progress, or if you’ve got an idea on which you would like to get some feedback, this is a great opportunity to get some time face-to-face with an editor from The Conversation.
