Learn to write
Sciencenorway.no offers writing courses for scientists and researchers, for experienced communications people, and specific courses for bloggers.
Our courses can be held at your institution or online. They can be half-day, full-day or even two days – depending on your needs and our availability.
Your instructors will be journalists and/or editors from sciencenorway.no with ample experience in translating science-speak to plain language, and how to write something that will not just be published, but also read.
Our writing courses for researchers and scientists preferably go for a full day. We ask the participants to send us a draft opinion piece in advance. It does not have to be a complete text. We will work through various aspects of this text throughout the day and offer all participants feedback after the course – if they wish to update their text and send us a new draft within two weeks. (Scroll down to see an example of a full-day programme)
Our goal is that each participant completes a text that can be published either on our site, or another news outlet. In our experience, this is not just possible, it is highly likely and is a frequent outcome of our writing classes.
We work together with you in order to put together a course that suits your needs. We can deal with registrations for a given course for you, if you wish. Or you can do this task yourself.
Our courses are available in both Norwegian and English.
