Everyone needs some handy resources about science, writing, and science writing, am I right?
Science and the Public:
Recommended Reading on the Public Face of Science by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Writing about Science:
The homepage of Neuwrite, the international scientists and writers collaboration group (check out if your city has a chapter!)
The Journal of Literature and Science is a peer-reviewed academic journal where you might find a home for your “academic essays on the subject of literature and science, broadly defined.”
The Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment has a members-only journal, ISLE, whih “publishes articles from literary scholars, environmental historians, specialists in the visual and performing arts, environmental philosophers, geographers, economists, ecologists, and scholars … [and] poetry, fiction, and literary nonfiction pertinent to its thematic focus.” They also have a great ‘call for contributions’ page for you to find other opportunities, here. For their impressive list of literary journals, click here.
Science Writing (Professionally):
Other Great Science or Writing Blogs:
Tenure, She Wrote is an excellent blog staffed by female academics in several disciplines; they discuss topics in academia, typically with a feminist bent (and by feminist I mean being critical of power differentials and inequality of all kinds, not just woman-centric!)
DIY MFA is a writer’s haven (if you follow my blog, you probably know how I feel about it already) and they have an engaging, frequently updated blog right on their homepage!
Resources (just for fun!):
Have a scientist you need to buy a gift for? Why not some gorgeous science-inspired jewelry made to satisfy every discipline!
