Are you considering doing outreach or joining a social media platform? Have you thought about what you would say if you met your Representative? Could you interest a non-scientist in your work and tell them why it’s important in 30 seconds or less?

This interactive workshop will address how to create clear and concise messages that are targeted to your audience; how to stay on-message during a media interview; best practices in social media communications; how to approach policy makers on scientific issues, and more. You’ll have the opportunity to practice your skills in a safe and comfortable setting.

WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM; WHAT'S YOUR POINT?

Writers ResourceA workshop for early-career geoscientists.

Hyatt Regency, Oxford, Sat., 18 Oct., 8:30–11 a.m. FREE (but an application is required); light breakfast provided.

You have a big pile of data and lots of good ideas. How do you parse all that into discrete, coherent papers?

  • Find out what editors and reviewers look for
  • Find out what makes a well-prepared manuscript
  • Learn more about peer review

This workshop, led by science editors from GSA’s journals, will focus on the process of preparing your research for submission to scholarly journals. Presentations by the three editors will be followed by roundtable discussions and a question-and-answer period.

Space is limited. Please complete the online application to sign up. We welcome applications from graduate students, early-career researchers, people getting back into research after a hiatus, post-docs, or anyone for whom this discussion is relevant.
