Many academics dream of sharing their research and expertise beyond the ivory tower, on media outlets such as the New York Times and NPR. However, the transition from academic to public writing can be intimidating for a variety of reasons–unfamiliarity with journalistic conventions, fear of being dismissed for making their work “too accessible” (as if that’s a bad thing!), and above all, a lack of self-belief in one’s expertise. In this webinar, I will talk about the mindset and mechanics behind transitioning from writing for fellow scholarly experts to writing for the public–from the art of pitching articles to landing a “big 5” publishing deal.
