Fellows are given the opportunity to develop their portfolios as writers and communicators, building bridges between scientific information and public understanding. Watch for fellowship openings.

WSG Sea Star Newsletter

Washington Sea Grant’s Science Communications fellowship has allowed me to develop my writing skills to engage a broad audience across several different platforms.  As a fellow, I have written press releases, generated social media posts, developed web content and attended outreach events.  This work has allowed me to reach scientists, reporters, and fishermen who all share my interest in protecting the marine environment.  Ultimately, this experience has significantly expanded my skillset and competency as a science communicator.
