- Selling your Science Story with Dr Amy-Jane Beer February 17, 2017
Thursday 23rd March – 7:00-9:30 pm
Come and experience a stimulating and fascinating talk with Dr Amy-Jane Beer, a professional Biologist who specialises in natural history and science. Her work has been based on sharing complex ideas and making them accessible and appealing for a wide range of readerships and platforms.
Amy-Jane believes that good science writing is all about bridging the Gap, this Gap is the problem of science not being approachable enough. Because society won’t value what it doesn’t understand. All too often science is mistrusted, misunderstood, or simply ignored.
How to end this issue? by creating a great science story which then becomes simply a great story. It is perfectly possible to be both scientist and storyteller. But many young scientists miss opportunities to develop the creative and communication skills that their discipline so badly needs. Fortunately, it’s never too late.
So, if you are a young scientist or just an interested writer, come along to what will be useful and incredible event.
