IRE Preview: Hone your science reporting skills at a free, 3-hour workshop

Do you shy away from stories about science? Worry about making global climate stories fit with local coverage? Struggle to make your audience care about science and environmental topics? A three-hour workshop on Sunday, June 7 will help you accurately communicate scientific information and give you practical ideas to ramp up your science and environmental storytelling.

We will examine the importance of science and environmental journalism in a click-bait world, see how the same scientific study can be spun by different merchants of doubt, and learn how to find trustworthy sources, identify motives, and avoid misinformation.

Stop by the session "Whose Truth? Evaluate experts, recognize junk, tell better science & environmental stories" for tips, best practices and advice, and an open forum for discussion and analysis.

Pre-registration is not required for this free workshop starting at 9 a.m. in Franklin 9&10.
