Craft Matters with Ruby Lal and Irina Dumitrescu

Feb 8, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Writing for a general audience is an opportunity to tell stories in new ways. Join Ruby Lal and Irina Dumitrescu as they reflect on the challenges and joys of craft in public writing. How do we balance scholarly rigour with accessibility? How do we develop our own voice and distinctive style? What kinds of audiences can we reach with our research? And what might we learn by embracing new narrative forms? Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation by submitting their own questions.
