Date:  Time:  Number of sessions:  Members:  Nonmembers:  Location: 

Learn more about the exciting range and potential of science writing and journalism.

In this class, we’ll talk about the do’s and don’ts of great science writing, publication venues and strategies, and the role of blogging and tweeting. This will be an interactive class! We will share what works and what doesn’t, and conclude with a short read and constructive critique. A notebook, pen, and scientific excitement are a must; please bring a short piece (200-500 words or less) that you would like to share. Reading is optional, and timing will depend on number of participants. The class is open to all skill levels.
