Dear friends

If you’re attending Congress at UBC, The Conversation Canada has a series of events to support scholars enhance the visibility, global reach, and impact of their work.

There are opportunities to meet one on one with editors, attend a writing workshop or hear from contributors to The Conversation Canada: https://theconversation.com/ca

Cheers, Alfred

Meet the Editors of The Conversation Canada
Do you have an important story to share about your research? Can you tell that story in a concise and compelling way? This event will enable researchers to drop in and meet the editors of The Conversation Canada to discuss what makes for a good pitch and get tips on writing clear, concise and timely research-driven analysis. The session is aimed at Humanities and Social Sciences researchers at all career stages who would like to meet one-on-one with an experienced editor to discuss ways of disseminating their research.

Drop-in session: Sunday, June 2, 2019, 10:00 - 14:00, NEST 2515

Drop-in session: Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 10:00 - 14:00, NEST 2515

Why I Write for The Conversation Canada
A panel of researchers who have contributed to The Conversation Canada will share their insights into the reasons for writing op-eds. They will talk about the mentoring model of The Conversation Canada that partners academics and journalists. Listen to their experience of pitching, writing and editing for the site and learn from them about the impact of publishing on The Conversation Canada.

Monday, June 3, 2019, 15:30 - 17:00, NEST 2311

Writing Opinion Pieces for a Public Audience
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.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 10:30 - 12:00, NEST 2314
