    Few of us ever learn how to write with consistency and fluency, yet being able to do so can mean the difference between being a highly regarded researcher and one who is overlooked. Studies have shown that successful writers practice specific habits that help them flourish and make the process of writing less mysterious. This workshop will focus on these habits and provide practical advice for fostering them in your own writing.

    Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:
    • Describe habits that make writers more successful
    • Develop a plan for integrating some of these habits into their own writing
    • Apply this plan to support their writing goals

    The elevator pitch! The purpose of this workshop is to introduce scientists to the idea that storytelling matters if they want to get resources and support for their science. Elements of a “good story” can apply to scholarly writing, and scholarly evidence demonstrates that certain elements of narrative writing increase citation frequency.

    At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
    • Explain the difference between expository and narrative writing
    • Identify the value of storytelling in science
    • Apply some narrative elements to science communication
    • Improve their quick pitch
