Below is a notice about a series of workshops in August, just before the
annual meetings, specifically designed for sociologists who want to share
their research with wider audiences.
While the people on this list may be well beyond the workshops on blogging,
twitter and analytics, you may be interested in workshops about how to
place an op-ed with major news outlets and how to be interviewed on camera.
I hope you'll consider attending, and of course, please share widely with
See you in August!

Praise for previous MediaCamp workshops:
“After attending a MediaCamp workshop, I ended up publishing some of my
research on women taxi drivers in American Prospect magazine. The editors
were so excited that they ran three of my stories on immigrant workers as
part of a series. And, the things I learned at the workshop came in very
handy last week when, following the death of Hugo Chavez (about whom I’ve
written), I found myself beseiged by media requests, including many
international and local tv stations, and an interview on MSNBC with Chris
Hayes. I used the workshop notes to prepare for my appearance on television
and it helped calm my nerves and make me feel more confident.”
