Welcome to the Science Writers Association of the Rocky Mountains!

About us

The Science Writers Association of the Rocky Mountains aims to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community among science writers, communicators, educators, students, and others in the Rocky Mountain region who are interested in writing about science for the public. Through networking, development and other events, we work to help science writers advance their professional skills. We aim to promote accurate, accessible, and ethical science writing as well as foster the understanding of science and technology and their relevance to society.

We are currently a listserv-based group, hosting monthly virtual meetings and organized by an all-volunteer board, but anticipate moving to a more formal membership structure in 2021. We're in the process of applying for 501(c)3 status as a nonprofit membership organization.
