WORKSHOPS

Members receive a discount for year-round events. The next workshop will be a third in a series of three workshops and held in March 2019. Sign up for our email list to receive updates (we send an average of one email every other week and they’re almost always for events).

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.

BOOK CLUB

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 on the third floor of BookPeople (use the back elevators). Head to BookPeople and search for ATXSciRead or mention it at the register to get 10% off of each month’s book club pick.
