Join us as we celebrate the publication of The Craft of Science Writing, published by The Open Notebook, a nonprofit that is a primary resource for science journalists and aspiring science writers. This free event, held during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, will include a lively discussion with Siri Carpenter and several contributors to this indispensable guide for media professionals, scientists, science educators, and anyone interested in communicating with the public about science.
“Writing is a lonely art. The vast majority of the process, from coming up with ideas to structuring a piece, is carried out in solitude. When you start out, you barely have a clue about what you’re doing, let alone what seasoned professionals get up to. Getting those pros to deconstruct their own methods for all to see is a massive boon to aspiring science writers.” — Ed Yong, author of I Contain Multitudes and science writer at The Atlantic
Co-presented by the Northwest Science Writers Association, The Open Notebook, and the Elliott Bay Book Company.
