New year, newsletter!

We're excited to share NASW's new monthly newsletter. It's a welcome addition to our communications toolbox, and hopefully your inbox too, as we connect you with NASW happenings and opportunities for the science writing community.

Feel free to forward it to your colleagues, bearing in mind that a portion of the content is accessible only to members. Reach out anytime with comments and to suggest content to include here, on the web, and in ScienceWriters magazine. You can unsubscribe from this newsletter using the link at the bottom of this email. This will not affect your receipt of dues or other membership communications.
