Science writing poses specific challenges: Science writers must engage their audiences while also explaining unfamiliar scientific concepts and processes. Further, they must illuminate arcane research methods while at the same time cope with scientific ignorance and uncertainty. Stocking&BAD:rsquo;s volume not only tackles these challenges, but also includes extraordinary breadth in story selection, from prize-winning narratives, profiles and explanatory pieces to accounts of scientific meetings and new discoveries, Q&BAD:amp;A&BAD:rsquo;s, traditional trend and issue stories, reviews, essays and blog posts. These Times exemplars, together with Stocking&BAD:rsquo;s guide to reading stories about science and technology, are perfect for science writers who aspire to diversify and hone their reporting and writing skills in a changing media climate. Holly Stocking is an experienced science writer, award-winning teacher, and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.MORE ABOUT TimesCollege . . . a series from CQ PressWhether it is the arts or science, medicine or business, you&BAD:rsquo;ll find stories that inspire while providing readers an insider&BAD:rsquo;s look into the rewards, challenges and everyday routines of beat reporting.
