On Dec. 1, 2018, Telling Stories: Using Narrative Techniques in Science Writing will feature plenary speaker, Kate Dawson, author of “Death in the Air: The True

Story of a Serial Killer, the Great London Smog, and the Strangling of a City” and breakout sessions to explore literary techniques and devices to hone your illustrative science storytelling.



This year's workshops are made possible by the Peggy Girshman Idea Grant awarded to Austin Texas Science Writers by the National Association of Science Writers (NASW) to identify and dismantle barriers to science communication.



Austin Texas Science Writers is collaborating with BookPeople on a book club devoted to the best of science and nature writing. We’ll revisit the classics and explore cutting-edge titles, from neuroscience to natural history, astrophysics to animal behavior. ATXSciRead meets the first Sunday of every month at 4 pm. Head to BookPeople to get 10% off of each month's book-club pick.

Upcoming meetings and titles:

Sunday, 11/4 at 4 pm (meet on the third floor): Nate Silver’s THE SIGNAL AND THE NOISE (November)

Sunday, 12/2 at 4pm: Mary Roach’s GULP (December)

Sunday, 1/6 at 4pm: David Quammen’s THE TANGLED TREE (January)



We hold social happy hours throughout the year for journalists, PR, communicators, technical writers, film and video pros, and anyone else interested in science communication. Join our Facebook group or visit the Event tab for updates.
