Capital Science Communicators is now listed with the National Association of Science Writers (NASW).
CapSciComm now appears on the “Local Science Writing Groups” page on the NASW website (http://www.nasw.org/local-science-writing-groups), joining a network of science communicators groups from around the United States.
The Summer 2013 issue of ScienceWriters, the membership magazine of NASW, also announces the arrival of CapSciComm to the U.S. science writing scene:
The National Association of Science Writers was founded in 1934 in New York, and it is the largest professional science writing association in the United States. The association was formally incorporated in 1955 with a charter to “foster the dissemination of accurate information regarding science through all media normally devoted to informing the public.” NASW leadership has included both freelancers and employees of most of the major newspapers, wire services, magazines, and broadcast outlets in the country. Today, NASW has 2,231 members and 252 student members.
The annual NASW conference is also fast approaching. ScienceWriters2013 will be hosted by the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, bringing writers and communicators from around the continent and across science, engineering, medicine and other disciplines.
Registration for the NASW meeting starts on August 15th at http://www.sciencewriters2013.org.
We’re thrilled to be part of the NASW network, and hope to see a CapSciComm contingent in Florida!
