Third Time's A Charm: Science-Writing Workshop At Yale

By Carl Zimmer | January 8, 2009 5:55 pm

On January 26 and Feburary 2, I’ll be teaching a workshop for science graduate students at Yale on writing about science for non-scientists. This is the third time for me, and I think I’ve got the hang of it. Of course, things have changed a lot since the last time around (see under Twitter), so I’m doing a little rethinking. That’s how you sprout new neurons, right?

Information about the workshop and registration can be found on the Yale Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology web site (flyer pdf).

    Hey Carl, that looks really interesting. Can the rest of us access the workshop notes somewhere? Or are there any particularly good articles that you would recommend?

  2. AAAS and NSF are hosting Communicating Science workshops and a website for scientists who would like to learn more about communicating research with broader (non-scientist) audiences. The next workshop will be held February 12 at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago. Registration info and online resources are avaialable at

  3. Great, Carl,

    I hope this time Yale really post the records of the discussion sessions online…

  4. Igor–I’ll let you know if it gets posted….
