Pictures and Words to Reach
Marine Ecologist and Climate Change Educator
11 AM–1:00 PM
Writers can make a significant contribution to our planet by documenting and writing about important issues that will affect future generations. Whether you are presenting science fact or science fiction, you will learn:
- How writers can reach people to make a difference.
- How to break down a complex subject, e.g. how our planet is changing.
- How to address implications for local, regional, and global communities.
- How to formulate solutions, e.g., technological and political.
- The importance of sending your audience off with a call to action or a probative question, e.g., How long do we have to solve this problem
