Bringing together scientists and writers

NeuWrite Nordic is a regional branch of the international collaborative science-writing workshop NeuWrite. NeuWrite Nordic brings together scientists and writers based in the Nordic region to provide feedback on drafts of each other's texts using the creative-writing workshop model.

Convention says science and literature are separate, and that the public must be told the correct facts of objective science. But as scientists, writers, and audiences, we are communally navigating mixed-together scientific and humanistic narratives going all directions. Thus science writing can, and perhaps should, also embrace uncertainty, vulnerability, subjectivity, emotion, metaphor, and imagination if the goal is to create lasting insight and impact.
