As part of the 2019 Maine Science Festival, I will be teaching a Science Writing 101 Workshop on Saturday (16 March) from 11:30 to 1:30 in Bangor, Maine.
Many scientists find it challenging and time-consuming to communicate in clear, simple terms with the average reader, while many journalists don’t have the time or interest to fully understand difficult scientific concepts well enough to report a science story in a general interest publication. We live in a time where data do matter and keeping science accessible and in the public eye is essential. In this workshop, I’ll lead participants through the process of reporting out a science story in a way that is both clear and compelling.
The workshop will be in Meeting Room D at the Cross Insurance Center at 515 Main Street in Bangor. Space is limited to 15 participants, and sign-up is required prior to the event.
