Every project has a story, and the field want to hear yours! Public history publications offer a way to share your research and experiences with others, gather feedback from across the field, and make connections for future partnerships. But how do you get started? Join editors from AASLH, NCPH, and Nursing Clio to learn about sharing your work through magazines, journals, and blogs. We’ll cover the basics of submitting work to History News, AASLH blogs, The Public Historian, History@Work, and the Nursing Clio blog, with tips on choosing your platform and focus. Readers across the country look to public history publications to gain ideas and inspiration for their own work, so sharing new techniques, hidden history, and challenges and opportunities in digital or hardcopy print is essential for a diverse and thriving field. Join us to find out how you can become a resource for the field by writing and sharing your public history work.
