Have a great S-CAR story? Here’s how you can pitch it to us.
February 9, 2019
Here at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, we’re pretty lucky. Our students, faculty, and alumni are at the forefront of analyzing conflict and engaging in conflict resolution around the world, whether by training hip-hop artists to address inequality, helping homeless youth transition to stable living environments, or fighting for justice even when it seems like the odds are stacked against it.
As such, we’re always on the lookout for new opportunities to tell the stories of the important work being done by the S-CAR community.
Do you have an interesting S-CAR story that you want to see highlighted on our website? Do you have an article on your research or practice that you’ve been itching to write? We’d love to hear from you!
To pitch your story or article idea, email Audrey Williams (Storyteller/Newsletter Editor) at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Story Idea” in the subject line.
Make sure to let us know if you would like to write the piece or if you are pitching a story to be considered for general coverage by S-CAR News.
1) We’re looking for articles between 500 and 1,000 words, with some room for maneuver on a case-by-case basis.
2) In your pitch, describe your story idea in a few sentences, and include some info about how you are connected to the S-CAR community (e.g., student, alum, faculty, etc.).
3) If you have an article already written, please attach it. However, it’s not necessary to have a draft ready to have your pitch considered.
4) We’re especially interested in the following types of articles, though we’re always open to new ideas:
- Spotlights on research and practice in which our students are involved. Examples include:
- “Course abroad takes S-CAR master’s student back to Ukraine” by Nora Malatinszky
- “Students get taste of humanitarian aid work in 70-hour roleplaying simulation” by John Dale Grover
- Analysis, essays, or opinion pieces on current conflicts and developments in the conflict analysis and resolution field. Examples include:
- “Engaging mental health: A conflict analysis guide for professional athletes” by Soolmaz Aboaali
- “Call it genocide” by Gregory Stanton
