Writing in the Sciences: Session 6

Writing in the Sciences: A Song of Fire and Ice

When you play the game of thrones, you publish or you perish.

Winter is coming, and you need to write that scientific paper. But do you feel you know nothing about writing an engaging science paper?

If so, come explore how the Game of Thrones character, Daenerys, develops from an abused sister into a powerful Queen who proclaims, "I am the dragon's daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming.” Learn the story techniques behind her enthralling development and then apply the techniques to your scientific writing. Afterwards, your writing will stick ‘em with the pointy end and captivate your reader.
 
For the watch!
 
You will learn to:
  • Create a logline, a script-writing tool, for your scientific paper to identify the single "conflict" or focus of your paper
  • Use stories to structure your scientific paper
  • Use the DNA of all stories (And, But, Therefore) when writing
