At ScienceWriters2016, we asked the question: How can we as U.S. science writers adapt to the changing demographics of our nation, and are there demographic contexts, nuances, and approaches we can learn and adapt in our public service as journalists and information officers?
We are now in 2018, and it is time for journalists and writers to accept Latinx audiences as part of the U.S. mainstream, as corporate America has done. As science writers working in the United States, we have an obligation to communicate science to a new definition of mass media. In this engaging, interactive workshop, we intend to draw from the experiences of professional communicators who have worked in this evolving space, and impart their insights for our NASW community at ScienceWriters2018!
