Free Stanford Science Writing Course plus More Training for Nurse Writers
SciWrite: Writing in the Sciences
This free online course offered by Stanford University requires you to create a login — and that’s it! Once you register, you have access to this thorough introductory course on how to write non-academic works. I glanced over the course slides, and the program looks very good. You can’t beat free, that’s for sure!
I know I talk about the Association of Health Care Journalists a lot, but it’s because you get so many perks for your membership dollar. The organization offers many free, archived webcasts to members, including:
- Beyond the Basics of Pitching: Become that dream writer
- Finding Fresh Stories in Newly Released Medicare Data (valuable even if you don’t write on this topic because the principles explained in the webinar — how to mine data for story material — can be applied to any health writing niche)
- Secrets of Pitching: Tips, tricks and insight into editors’ minds
AHCJ membership costs a paltry $60 per year. It’s an incredible bargain. Just sign up already.
If you hear of any other training opportunities for nurse writers, please send them my way!
Wishing you well,
