This one day course was delivered by myself and Peter Hyldgård, the head of the Danish Centre for science Communication at Videnskab.dk. It was delivered to PhD students in the AQUA department at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), as a short introduction to popular science writing.
We covered some of the key concepts in popular scicomm, including:
- How to structure a popsci article
- How to write an engaging headline
- How to shape a take-home message
- How to find a consistent narrative
