ScienceWriters2021 conference transitioning to all-virtual event

Given the continuing risks and uncertainties posed by the coronavirus pandemic, the National Association of Science Writers (NASW) and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW) are announcing the transition of ScienceWriters2021 (#SciWri21) to a virtual-only event. The decision was reached in coordination with our hosting partners at the University of Colorado Boulder and University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

2021 NASW Diversity Reporting Grants

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the normal order of our lives, and has represented hardships for many of us. This can be especially true for freelance writers, who may be finding it particularly difficult to secure work in these challenging economic times. The NASW Diversity Committee’s aim is to support the science writing community, so we are continuing with a set of Diversity Reporting Grants this year. This program will support five reporting grants of $1,000 each.
