SoCal Science Writing

 Science, medical & environment communicators association of Southern California


SoCal Science Writing is a regional group of science writers, broadcasters, editors, and PIOs based in Southern California and run by a volunteer group of independent journalists.

Our goal is to foster connections between local science communicators, improve the professional lives of our group members, and ultimately enhance the public understanding of science.
