Every year, the ScienceWriters meeting brings together reporters, editors, filmmakers, writers and other professionals who are dedicated to the craft of science communication. As a co-organizer of the meeting, CASW hosts a slew of New Horizons science briefings, funds and mentors science journalism fellows and trainees, hands out annual awards, and more.
