Public engagement masterclass

Do you or your staff want to become more confident about engaging with the media and the public? Do you know why the vast majority of story pitches are rejected by the media?  Would you like to learn how to dramatically improve your chances of having your work picked up by non-academic media outlets? The Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education has partnered with The Conversation to deliver this masterclass.

Whether you’re a media novice, or more experienced and ready to hone your storytelling skills, this workshop provides tailored training in planning, pitching and writing stories for non-academic audiences. Each session is limited to a maximum of 20 people, giving all participants the opportunity to receive personalised feedback.
