WSG Sea Star Newsletter


Rachel Aronson, 2011 Science Writing Fellow/2012 Hershman FellowWashington Sea Grant’s Science Writing Fellowship introduced me to the field of science writing, not just on campus but also across the Northwest. My Sea Star article on hypoxia in Hood Canal allowed me to interview internationally known scientists about a topic important to Washington State. The Science Writing Fellowship provides a level of mentoring that helped my writing become a much more effective tool for science advocacy.
