I mention this because I just ran across a project that I'm going to have to learn more about,
NeuWrite is a collaborative working group for scientists, writers, and those in between: graduate, post-doctoral and faculty researchers, fiction and non-fiction writers, as well Journalism and MFA students at Columbia. The group serves as a writing and science resource for members pursuing their own projects, and as a forum for collaborative work. (source)In particular, one of the projects linked to from neuwrite is the NeuroJournalism Mill, a "site dedicated to sifting the wheat from the chaff of popular media reporting on news about the brain". It looks like a very worthwhile project. If there are readers of this blog interested in trying something similar on environmental reporting, drop me a line. I'd like to "talk" with you about whether an EnviroJournalism Mill would also be worthwhile.
