· Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in a newsroom?
· Who decides what stories to cover and when?
· Where do science stories fit in?
· And how do you get your research in the news?
Join us on Monday 27 June to find out as the Australian Science Communicators, Royal Society of Victoria, and Science in Public team up to introduce you to our local Melbourne science (and science-interested) journalists.
We’ll bring together a panel of working journalists from print, TV, and radio to tell us about what they do, and what they look for in a story.
The panel will give you an introduction to the needs and challenges of TV news, radio, and the daily press.
We’ll kick off with a few questions like:
· What turns science into news for them and their audiences
· What they need to tell your story
· How you can help them engage their audience and stay true to the science.
Then you can turn the tables and ask them your questions.
This event is FREE, but you’ll need to reserve your place via Eventbrite.
When: Monday 27 June – nibbles and networking from 6pm, forum to start at 6.30pm
Where: Royal Society of Victoria, 8 La Trobe St, Melbourne
