Media Coaching for Scholars with Nomi Morris

Date and Time
Henley Board Room, Mosher Alumni House - UCSB

Push your research findings and insights beyond the world of academic publishing. This two-hour workshop will help you get your work noticed beyond your discipline, gaining exposure in mainstream media outlets and on popular niche platforms, reaching a wider and less specialized audience. Veteran journalist and Writing Program Lecturer Nomi Morris will take you into the mindset of non-academic editors and coach you toward getting your work featured in print and online outlets you may not have considered. Who to pitch to and how? Write about it yourself or get them to write about you? How to convert jargon from your field into features for the layperson? These and other topics will be workshopped.
