The annual science writers conference (#SciWri15) has just finished in the US version of Cambridge, in MA. I’m disappointed I couldn’t attend this year, but submitting your thesis has to come before fun/travel/everything unfortunately. Luckily, science writers are (unsurprisingly) extremely good at writing about science conferences and live-tweeting events, so following along has been easy and inspired me to come along next year.
If you’d like to see some of the tweets from the conference, search the hashtag #SciWri15 on Twitter. Alternatively, some blog posts reporting on the conference have been published on the NASW website where you can read more in depth posts about the talks or search the reports on previous meetings. There’s information about applying for funding from the NASW, dealing with copyrights, using art in science communication, and even sexism. Check it out.
