The University of Washington Puget Sound Institute is sponsoring up to 10 student writers to report short (300-word) stories about science findings presented at the upcoming Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference. The conference will be held online April 26-28. We are offering $200 per story and can cover conference registration costs. Successful writers will publish their work in our magazine Salish Sea Currents. Writers will also be encouraged to promote their work through social media. The project will include a two-hour pre-conference orientation meeting in early April.
Preference will be given to graduate students with an interest in science writing. Those who would like to be involved can send a CV and two writing samples directly to Jeff Rice at: jeffrice @ uw.edu. The deadline for applications is March 18th. Spots will fill up quickly, so we encourage students to contact us as soon as possible.
