X514: Writing about Science in Splash Spring 2018 (Apr. 21, 2018)
Come try your hand at crafting non-technical science writing fit for public consumption! All levels of scientific knowledge and journalistic experience are welcome - the only requirements are enthusiasm and a willingness to engage in constructive criticism. Reading selections drawn from Richard Dawkins, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Carl Zimmer, and more, you'll be introduced to the key principles and tricks of the trade followed by some of the best science journalists and luminaries of long-form explanatory science writing. After appreciating the work of these modern masters, you'll get to take a stab at writing breaking science news and/or creative passages about any science-related topics that animate you. You'll leave this class with a basic writing skillset to help combat science illiteracy and spread your passion for science by distilling complex topics into digestible news and/or soaring prose.
