"Science editors have few formal opportunities to learn critical skills. To help fill this critical gap, The Open Notebook is offering a series of virtual, interactive workshops that will give emerging and established editors the skills and confidence to work with writers on selecting and sharpening story ideas, planning and carrying out reporting, anticipating and troubleshooting problems in the reporting and writing process, and crafting accurate and compelling stories." The workshop series has run three times, most recently in spring-summer 2023. The registration fee is $90 per workshop, though discounted rates are available.
