Council for the Advancement of Science Writing

ComSciCon workshop at ScienceWriters2019

CASW is excited to partner with the students behind ComSciCon—a workshop focused on communicating science organized by graduate students for graduate students—to bring a ComSciCon workshop to ScienceWriters2019.

ComSciCon-SciWri19 is the second time ComSciCon and CASW will join forces to give students an opportunity to build their experience through writing and interactions with professional science writers. CASW board members and other senior science writers will serve as presenters, mentors and editors at the preconference workshop. ComSciCon students will write about science presented at CASW's New Horizons in Science briefings and publish their stories on a student newsroom web page.

Applications from interested graduate students may be submitted to ComSciCon until May 1, 2019. The workshop, which is funded by HHMI through CASW, will be on October 24 ahead of ScienceWriters2019 October 25-29 in State College, Pa.
