  • Brief explanation of The Conversation U.S. and the value of writing for the public. 
  • Details on what makes a good story idea or "pitch." 
  • Examples of pitches that, with refinement, developed into published articles on The Conversation U.S. 
  • How The Conversation U.S.'s editorial process works from start to finish.
  • UNLV faculty contributors sharing their experience on the process from their perspective. 
  • Q&A.
