Want to share your most exciting ideas with a broad public audience? Join us for a writing workshop with Torie Bosch, editor of Slate.com’s Future Tense channel, to explore how writing for venues like Future Tense can help researchers and scholars correct misconceptions, inspire new ways of thinking about divisive issues and shape the public conversation about big ideas.
Future Tense, a collaboration among ASU, Slate, and the New America Foundation, is a citizen’s guide to the future, exploring emerging technologies and their transformative effects on culture, society, and public policy. At the workshop we’ll discuss ways to translate scholarly and academic concepts and arguments for diverse publics, focusing on issues like organization and structure, writing style and tone, and finding vivid examples and news hooks to make your ideas vivid, tangible and relatable.
Light food and beverages will be provided.
