S3540 - Science Writing for a General Audience - New Summer 2012!

Science Writing for a General Audience will provide an introduction to the challenges and pitfalls of popular science writing. We'll first consider the question, "What is science writing?" and try to answer that question with varied examples of the genre. In this course, you will develop the skills and strategies necessary to critically evaluate popular science writing and to produce accurate and engaging writing of your own. Guest writers and editors from the New York area will visit the course to introduce certain topics. There are no prerequisites but senior students and/or students with previous writing courses are given preference.
