Who are we?

Interpreters of quantum physics and global pandemics

We are the people who write science for the public. We are interpreters of quantum physics and coronavirus pandemics. We are behind the scenes at research centers, and we are on science expeditions in the Arctic. We are bloggers, editors, producers, and strategists.

Please consider joining us, if you agree with our mission to improve science literacy and improve the professional lives of our members. We collaborate with many other science organizations in the Puget Sound area, including Science on Tap, the Pacific Science Center, the Forum for Science, Ethics and Policy, and others. We also maintain good relationships with  the National Association of Science Writers and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing.

We bring together audiences for improving the craft of writing and communication, and we hold events to spur learning about transformational themes in science.

We welcome you to explore our site and check out our events calendar, our member directory, recent writing by our members, and all the other resources we offer. Follow our updates on Facebook and Twitter. Join in a community where you can make suggestions and make a difference.
