Abstract
Keen to write for The Conversation, but not sure how to go about doing it? During this presentation I’ll talk about: what makes a good article; how to pitch stories ideas effectively; and what it means if your idea gets rejected. We’ll provide some dos and don’ts for writing for a lay audience, and also take you through our editing process.
