Speakers’ Series: Retired journalist to share tips March 4


Anyone looking to become published may want to mark the next Speakers’ Series on their calendar.

Carin Rubenstein, a retired New York Times journalist and current Pima Community College psychology instructor, will share the necessary steps to take in order to become published in newspapers.

Rubenstein will also discuss eight key steps to writing and publishing a book.

The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. on March 4 at the Community Board Room in PCC’s District Office, Building C, 4905 E. Broadway Blvd.

Admission is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available.

“This talk will be interesting for anyone who has ever, even vaguely, thought they might want to get published,” Rubenstein said in a telephone interview.

Rubenstein, who earned a PhD in social/personality psychology, writes with an emphasis on conducting survey research. She has written numerous articles for the New York Times, as well as many women’s magazines.

Rubenstein is also the author of four nonfiction books, including “The Superior Wife Syndrome,” which was published in 2009 by Touchstone.

This will be the second of six talks by PCC faculty for the 2014 Speakers’ Series.

The next discussion will take place April 1 with geology instructor Noah Fay’s presentation, “Earthquakes in the Western U.S: Is Arizona at Risk?”
