From blogging to news and opinion articles, writing remains one of the best ways for scientists to reach the public. While there are many styles and formats for popular science writing, certain elements of good writing are required. In this workshop we discuss the various formats of writing as well as why and when each is used. We will also discuss how to tell a good story and common bad habits scientists have when writing for the public. Participants will practice writing short pieces based on their own work or interests that will be shared and discussed during the workshop.
All participants need a microphone and ideally a webcam.
Hardware integrated into the laptop is perfectly adequate.
