Tips for working with the media

G. Stanley Hall, in the New York Tribune, June 29, 1908: “College professors must do something to keep themselves from being made ridiculous. The time has come when a college professor cannot open his mouth without being made to look, speak and act like a fool. I have no doubt that the remarks that I am making now will be distorted in the press of the country.”

Our goal is to make Clark's and your good work of interest to the media and visible to the world.

Being in the spotlight can be exhilarating and daunting at once. Whether we've helped arrange coverage or not, please let us know if you’re planning an interview. We can help supply contact and background information to a reporter, handle logistics, and track/share results of any coverage. If you pen an op-ed or commentary, we can help with editing and placement.

Being prepared can help you shine and avoid disappointment.
Too late for President Hall! :-) -->
