Jim Carroll, editor of RTÉ Brainstorm will be delivering a series of informal workshops on writing for the media, what editors look for in stories from the research community, and how to frame research insights in a way that engages the public.
During these sessions, Jim will give an overview of RTÉ Brainstorm and how it can work for you as a platform to communicate your work. Since its launch in 2017, RTÉ Brainstorm has reached over 5 million views with over 1300 academics signed up. Academics and researchers from Ulster University have made a strong contribution to this platform which brings new thinking, ideas and perspectives to a general public audience. Often, this leads to appearances on other RTÉ channels such as their radio and TV shows.
Jim will also be available on the day for one-to-one pitching sessions, so please bring along a synopsis of your idea to discuss with Jim. If you’ve featured on Brainstorm previously, this workshop will give you the chance to re-connect with Jim and discuss any new ideas you may have.
