Writing and Engaging Popular Media

Group Description

A joint effort from the departments of Neurology and Psychiatry, the group targets residents interested in improving their science writing skills for the popular press.

This year, we will focus on written and video forms with an impressive speaker line-up that includes writers and editors from the NYT, TIME, and Scientific American as well as the curator of TED Med.

We will alternate between skill-driven guest speakers and workshop sessions. Skills include how to organize, research, write, and pitch Op-Ed, short form, long form, and column articles.
