Austin Texas Science Writers (@ATXSciWri) was founded in December 2017 to address the growing need for a cohesive group to develop local expertise and interest in science and writing. While Central Texas is a research hub, few institutional resources are dedicated to science writing. ATXSciWri is working to change that.


The mission of ATXSciWri is to:

  • Promote accurate, accessible, and ethical science writing in Central Texas
  • Foster the understanding of science and technology and their relevance to society
  • Advance the skills of area science writers and aspiring science writers
  • Provide expert-driven and grassroots exchanges of ideas on science communication

Become a better scientist or communicator
