Science writing course at Cambridge University

In October I’m teaching an introductory weekend course on science and nature writing at Cambridge University’s Madingley Hall. I’ll be focusing on the craft of good writing, finding stories, and making sense of complicated ideas. We’ll talk in particular about writing popular books, features and news stories. And there’ll be a chance to practise your writing and get feedback from me.

The course is open to everyone. A background in science isn’t required. You just need to be interested in the world around you and have a keen desire to write about it.

Find out more details about the course here (including how to apply for a bursary).
