University Communications is coordinating these workshops with The Conversation, “a collaboration between editors and academics to provide informed news analysis and commentary that’s free to read and republish.” Academics write an 800-1,200 word analysis of their recent research, work or study. The Conversation then posts it to their website as well as send it out to subscribers. UT Austin is a founding member. Here is their link: http://theconversation.com/us.

Keep in mind that The Conversation does not publish traditional op-eds so professors who may be resistant to writing opinion pieces may be more inclined to write for The Conversation since the their focus is more towards educating and analyzing.
