To Publish Group (Washington, DC)
Washington DC Write to Publish Group is different from most groups of writers (who concentrate on criticizing each other). Rather, this group is devoted to the "business side" of the letter and works to explain to writers (and would be authors) what they can await when they take a completed script and offer it for purchase.
A publisher in his own right, Robin has "done everything" when it comes to the publication of music.
Thinking, Writing, Publishing
It is not only the main researchers' experiences that demonstrate the need for such an action, but also the high standard of modern dialog on many high-profile academic and technological questions. In order to create a new awareness among the general community and a new relation between some actors, we have gathered three main groups for a two-day workshop: 1) Next Gen Communicators interested in S&T; 2) Next Gen Science und Technologie Policies (STP) Leader; and 3) writers from large journals, publishers and documentaries producers dealing with these subjects.
In May 2010, the workshops were combined with a major The Rightful Place of Science conference to help Next Gen communicators and STP fellows network by gaining coherent experiences and joint practice on the capabilities needed to educate a wide and expanding public, expressing and sharing thoughts with this public, working with writers and other leading comunicators in their field and publishing their work at the end of the work.
It has led to continuous relations between the attendees. It began to close the gap between the general public's perception of academia and innovation and the prospects of scientific and technological policies. It was organised by a PI (Lee Gutkind) and a Co-PI (David Guston), both of whom are leading in the fields of creativity non-fiction and scientific and technological politics.
Scientifically speaking, it is innovating because there are very few instances of efficient non-formal scientific literacy in the field of scientific and technological policies, especially by STP scholarship holders and those who are receiving information from them, and not by researchers and engeneers themselves. In addition, the workshops presented both Next Gen Communicators and STP scholarship holders with inventive non-fiction books that have raised consciousness and enthusiasm for the new way of communication of science at work.
This will make them more competent and motivating to convey the essentials and value of their actions not only to political decision-makers in politics and the economy, but also to the press and the general public via printed matter, videos, radio stations and Internet. Twelve Next Gen Communicators and twelve STP fellows began to meet the need for STP fellowships for the general and political communities by establishing new interrelations.
This new relationship was reflected in a flagship project of efforts in a one-off Issues in Science and Technology devoted to the publication of a number of original books from the workshops, as well as a wide range of wide-ranging web-based distribution activity and other related publications. Thinking, writing, publishing" results have very tangible effects not only for the various communication experts and scientists, but also for the general population.
Through the creation of working relationships between these Next Gen Communicators and scientists and the provision of effective translation tool for STP for consumerism, this workshops has met a contemporary and significant need in the US to foster a greater appreciation and interest in scientific and technological policies for the coming years.
