PWR 91CG: Intermediate Writing: Science and Technology Writing for Popular Audiences

Whether you're a fuzzy or a techie, chances are you've had to explain the content of the classes you've taken to outside audiences. You've had to explain to your parents how your/their tuition dollars are at work, or you've advocated for your well-rounded background during a job interview. Your access to Stanford has granted you a certain expert label, even if it doesn't always feel that way. This course leverages your growing expertise by introducing you to writing styles and genres that will allow you to communicate your technical interests to a non-expert, or popular, audience. We'll talk about stylistic points including story ledes and anecdotes, metaphor, and organizing familiar and non-familiar language in our writing. We'll also experiment with different genres that accomplish these translation goals by experimenting with writing abstracts, journalism pieces, provocative podcasts, first-person narratives, visual essays, and creative non-fiction essays. Our ultimate goal will be to not only better understand these styles and genres in order to communicate more effectively with a wide variety of audiences, but to also seek publication in local newspapers, blogs, and sources such as Salon, Slate, The Huffington Post, The Atlantic, and even Wired or Radiolab.
