Conversation logo

Faculty and grad students, if you have been thinking about writing for The Conversation, you will have the chance to pitch your ideas to an editor in person here on campus Oct. 8.

Jennifer Weeks, environment and energy editor, will be in Room 308 in the Lory Student Center from 9 a.m. to noon, and then in Room 219 of the Hartshorn Building from 1 to 5 p.m. No need to pre-register, just stop by and talk. She is open to ideas from any discipline, and will share them with The Conversation editorial team.

Faculty, researchers, graduate students, Ph.D. candidates and post-docs are all eligible to write for The Conversation, so please share this information with colleagues who you think would be interested in learning how to share their academic work with general readers around the world.

Colorado State University is a participating member of the independent nonprofit The Conversation, and to date, nearly 100 CSU authors have published more than 150 articles on subjects ranging from methane emissions to parenting, the history of helium to why humans speak so many languages. Our top 10 articles have all been read hundreds of thousands of times in publications on six continents – and most likely online in Antarctica, too.

To see the kind of articles The Conversation publishes, go to the website theconversation.com/us, or check out the stories by CSU authors posted on the SOURCE homepage at source.colostate.edu
