    > In the era of fake news, it is critical that research be translated and published as widely and accurately as possible. Among many journalists, however, academics are notorious for their caveats, sub-clauses, and unwillingness to tell a good story. Research experts often find it challenging to engage non-specialist audiences in ways that preserve the rigor and credibility of their work.
    >
    > This workshop will offer a framework, tools, and actionable strategies to write research narratives that inform and engage non-specialist audiences. It will focus on how to develop a brief, effective research summary tailored for one or more publics beyond your field who may or may not have research backgrounds.
    >
    > We will explore how to create common ground, prioritize key points, preserve credibility, and invite curiosity. The principles we will discuss can be applied to a wide range of genres such as op-eds, educational case studies, and summaries for funding proposals.
    >
    > Participants will:
    > Identify one or more publics as your target audience
    > Focus your argument for that audience
    > Draft the first sentence of your next writing project
