About the workshop...

Who does CSC-SW21 serve?
Are you a science researcher or medical student interested in a career in science communication and/or science journalism?

Are you an early-stage science communicator, podcaster, and/or science journalist looking to hone your craft?

Are you looking for an opportunity to network with and receive mentorship from professional science communicators? Would you like to work with professional editors and publish your own piece?

Details about CSC-SW21:
Accepted CSC-SW21 workshop attendees will receive a free membership in the National Association of Science Writers (NASW) and free registration for all ScienceWriters 2021 conference activities, which include virtual events (beginning September 28th). See the full schedule by reviewing the 

ScienceWriters2021 program. 

Accepted workshop attendees will also receive personal hands-on training and mentorship as well as publish an original piece by the end of the workshop. This year, interested attendees can also team up with expert podcasters to provide ongoing updates for the conference at-large.

Like the ScienceWriters 2021 conference, the 4th annual ComSciCon-SciWri2021 workshop was intended to take place as a hybrid event, with in-person activities occurring at The University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all conference and workshop activities will now be offered virtually only beginning on October 2-3 and resuming October 7-11. Please see the testimonials on this page from last year's (ComSciCon-SciWri2020) workshop, which was also exclusively virtual.

​Applications are open to all graduate and early-stage post-graduate students, as well as early-stage science writers. Undergraduate applications will also be considered.
