Learn more about writing for popular academic website 'The Conversation'

students studying at UEL

'The Conversation' editor Matt Warren will host an introductory talk and information session for UEL academics interested in writing for the popular website 

All UEL academics and PhD candidates are invited to learn more about how they can promote their research and ideas by writing for The Conversation.

The Conversation Deputy Editor Matt Warren will be at UEL on 15 November for an introductory talk and information session about how and why UEL academics should write for the independent, not-for-profit website, which draws its contributors from 65 UK universities.

The Conversation attracts about one million unique visitors a month. It also allows other outlets to re-use its content for free through Creative Commons licensing. This means that some of the most prestigious and well-read news and opinion sources in the UK and around the world regularly run pieces from The Conversation

Since UEL joined The Conversation in June, our academics have had pieces re-published in outlets including The Daily Mail, Salon, Quartz, The Independent and Canada's National Post

Written pieces are generally 500-700 words and may be tied to a contributor's research or a topical news items. 

The event will be in EB.1.03 on the Docklands Campus from 2.15 to 3.30. Nibbles will be provided.

To help us plan for the event, we ask that you please RSVP by emailing Communications Officer Kiera Hay at or reserving a spot here.
