New resource site for science journalists, communicators

For the last few months, I’ve been working with the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW) on a new resource website for science journalists and communicators. The site launched this past week, and I’m sharing it here because I think it might be useful for a lot of COVID-19 Data Dispatch readers.

Here’s a bit of info about the new website:

CASW Connector is a curated library of resources on science journalism and communication, including articles, guides, training programs, conferences, fellowships, career advice, and more.

The site aims to bring together resources from organizations, centers, and disciplines from around the internet that all serve the same goal: promoting excellence in communication about science to the public.

CASW Connector is for journalists, scientists, communicators, educators, students, and anyone interested in sharing science with the public. You can search or browse resources handpicked by our team and suggested by our readers, and you can keep tabs on upcoming events and deadlines. You can even submit your own suggestions of events and resources you would like us to include.

Later this summer, CASW Connector will launch a newsletter featuring short articles, announcements and updates; subscribe now to receive the first issues. And later this year we’ll launch a webinar series that is, like Connector itself, devoted to excellence in science writing and communication.

We hope you’ll check Connector out, and share it with friends and colleagues! We welcome any feedback or suggestions you may have; drop us a line at to tell us what you think!
