Writing for a Broad Audience

The Conversation logo

This workshop will not be offered for the 2020-21 academic year. Please check back for information for the following year.

The Center for Ethics in Society partners with The Conversation to offer an annual workshop for graduate students on how to write for a broader audience.

The Conversation is an online, independent source of news and views that features writing from the research community, delivered direct to the public. The Conversation has a team of professional editors working with university-based scholars to help their research reach more people and have more influence. Content on The Conversation site is always free to read and free to share, so contributing writers may republish their work under Creative Commons. More than 30,000 academics have joined The Conversation experts database, and the content from the site is disseminated to more than 22,000 sites worldwide. 

Workshop participants will learn how to frame their work to be accessible and compelling to non-academics, and will have time during the workshop to begin writing a draft article. The workshop is open to graduate students from all disciplines and schools. Applicants' research should address or illuminate issues of ethics in public life. Space is limited to 20.

Please email Anne Newman if you have any questions.
