More than ever we need a diverse range of people who can write clearly and critically about our economic system from a range of non-traditional viewpoints. How though, do you get your content published and who will publish it? In this workshop author and journalist Brett Scott will tell you his story of building up his journalism portfolio and getting two book publishing deals with Penguin & Pluto Press, and lay out a range of tips and approaches for getting yourself noticed in the world of economic writing.
