No matter what your field of research, you have expertise that is valuable to public discourse. But how do you connect with a broader audience? In this hands-on workshop, Tanya Domi, Director of Media Relations at the Graduate Center, will teach strategies for getting your ideas published in mainstream media outlets. Learn how to connect your research to the news and get started with op-eds, letters to the editor, and more.
