Have I Got a Story for You!

Niki Wilson

Are you a researcher who also wants to write about science for the public? We’ve invited science journalist Niki Wilson to cover ACTWS/CSTWS19 this year, and she’s offered to share her experience with a few lucky conference goers.

If you’ve got a story pitch that you think would play well in popular media, write it down and send it to us. No more than 300 words please! We’ll pick the top 4 entries and set up a 15 minute, one-on-one lunch meeting with Niki to discuss your idea. She’ll give you feedback, provide tips on shaping your pitch, and suggest some possible venues for your story.

True to her nature, Niki is a great listener and knows the “science writing business”.  I guarantee, you’ll leave that meeting informed, inspired and ready to make the world a richer place.
