UQ researcher Dr Marnee Shay is teaming up with Editors from The Conversation, Liz Minchin & Sunanda Creagh to explore the process of pitching and writing new articles about your research. 

This workshop is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HDR students and relevant staff to learn about The Conversation's recent editorial changes on sharing Indigenous knowledge (both within and beyond universities), changes driven by author's feedback and to discuss your story ideas and how to pitch them.
