Editors’ Guide to The Conversation for UC academics

In this in-person presentation in Rehua’s Te Moana Nui a Kiwa Room (226) on Monday 8 August at 12pm, NZ Editors Finlay Macdonald and Veronika Meduna will explain how to pitch new articles about your research and publish rapid expert analysis of issues in the news. (You can also download the two-page guide for new authors.) The informal talk will cover how The Conversation chases and commissions stories, how the editing process works and some basic background on how to write for a general, non-academic readership.

Finlay and Veronika will be available to answer your questions and can meet with UC academics before and after the presentation.
