A new gig: The Council for the Advancement of Science Writing

By Carl Zimmer | May 9, 2011 9:32 am

I’m pleased to report that I’ve just been appointed to the board of directors of the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing. It’s a venerable organization that’s been around for fifty years, dedicated to improving the quality of science news reaching the public. Their programs include the New Horizons in Science briefing, which brings together leading scientists with journalist to talk about cutting-edge research. We’re already scheming about some new ideas to use twenty-first century tools to help science writers–and readers–in new ways. I’ll keep you posted.
