ANNOUNCEMENT – Young Statisticians Writing Webinar (4pm on 19 Mar 2015)



Young Statisticians Writing Webinar, 4-5pm on Thursday 19 March 2015!

Are you interested in the 2015 Young Statisticians Writing Competition, but dont know where to start, or need a little extra motivation? Or are you keen to learn more about making your statistical writing accessible? If so, the Young Statisticians Writing Webinar is for you!

The YSS will be hosting a free one-hour webinar at 4pm (GMT) on 19 March 2015 covering everything you need to know to start writing. Three fantastic presenters will be sharing their experience and advice, and you will have the chance to ask them any burning questions you have relating to the competition, or any more general queries you have on making your statistical writing jump off the page.

Brian Tarran, the editor of Significance magazine, will summarise all the details of the competition, including its purpose, as well as general tips on what the judges will be looking for.

Jonathan Auerbach, last years competition winner, will add his perspective on how he came up with his idea and the approach he took to writing it up.

Robert Matthews, an experienced science writer, will finish off with some general pointers about how to explain complex scientific and technical details in an accessible and engaging way.
