This blog is related to course offerings in science writing at the University of Maine. First offered as Science Communication in 2008 in the Department of Communication & Journalism, the course evolved into Science & the News Media in 2011. In 2013 I revised the course for the English Department as Science Writing, ENG 418, Topics in Professional Writing. Each time, the syllabus and the lectures covered in this blog are updated and adjusted for current students.

I am a science writer with the Maine Sea Grant College Program at the University of Maine. I also write freelance articles and creative nonfiction, and including the book A Coastal Companion: A Year in the Gulf of Maine from Cape Cod to Canada.
