SciComm 4: Scientific Writing - Communicating Your Work Through Manuscript and Grant-Writing, Jan 21, 10am-12pm and 12:30-2:30pm
If an experiment is done in the lab but no journal ever publishes it, did it really happen? Writing scientific articles and grants is critical for communicating our work to other scientists and advancing our fields, but scientific writing is often indecipherable, even to other scientists. Join Dr. Judith Swan, Associate Director for Writing in Science and Engineering at Princeton and renowned scientific writing expert, as she teaches students to clarify their writing, anticipate the expectations of readers, and make persuasive arguments.
This workshop will be held in two back-to-back parts. Part 1 (10am-12pm) will focus on "Clarifying Cause and Effect in Writing", and Part 2 (12:30-2:30pm) will focus on "The Art of Persuasion". Students can attend Part 1, Part 2, or both, as parts 1 and 2 will be related but distinct. There will be interactive group exercises to encourage retention, as well as an optional take-home assignment. Food will be served!
Please indicate if you would like to attend the workshop on January 21st in Bodek Lounge (Houston Hall) at
3417 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA 19104
Please note: Attendance is extremely limited and all attendees must confirm that they can fill the seat they have reserved.
